Bismuth-based erbium-doped fiber (Bi-EDF) is comprehensively reviewed as an alternative medium for optical amplification as well as applications in nonlinear optics. The bismuth glass host provides the opportunity to be doped heavily with erbium ions to allow a compact optical amplifier design. Compared to silica-based erbium-doped fiber, this fiber only requires a gain medium as short as 215cm for long wavelength band (L-band) amplification and also capable to provide a wider gain bandwidth up to the extended L-band region. This book explores the new configuration for wide-band Bismuth-based erbium-doped amplifier to provide a flat-gain amplifier covering wavelengths from C-band to the extended L-band region using a two-stage double-pass configuration.
