The noise of continuous-wave-pumped broadband continua generated in a holey fiber is characterized in two different all-fiber configurations. An amplified spontaneous emission seeded ytterbium-doped fiber source and fiber Bragg grating based Yb laser were employed to initiate Raman-soliton continuum generation in 100 m of anomalously dispersive holey fiber with spectral width of 300 nm and spectral power density over 10 mW/nm. Low noise operation makes these sources suitable for optical coherence tomography applications.

    The effect of injecting conventional band (C-band) amplified spontaneous emission on the performance of long-wavelength band erbium-doped fiber amplifier (L-band EDFA) is demonstrated. It uses a circulator and broadband fiber Bragg grating (FBG) to route C-band ASE from a C-band EDFA. Injection...
