Abstract

Rapid development of single-mode and multi-mode laser systems is in line with the current technology of optical communication systems, especially in the Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system. The design of the laser system was undertaken to investigate the factors that influence the overall performance of the laser system. The construction of erbium doped fibre laser (EDFL) system used erbium as doped material. The focus of this research is to study the characteristics of the multi-mode fibre laser system where two designs are proposed. The simulation was carried out by using OptiSystem software version 7.0. The development of the EDFL system involves several design parameters which includes EDF length, coupling ratio and input pump power. Results show that all design parameters do affect the performance of the system. The multi-mode EDFL system of 10 m EDF length with 90% of coupling ratio and a wavelength of FBG at 1551 nm and 1552 nm are able to generate a maximum output power of 0.0211 mW for two wavelengths-based designs and 0.0238 mW for FWM-based design respectively.
