Title: Bismuth-doped ultra-broadband fibre amplifier
Overview: The PhD will characterize different types of Bismuth-doped fibres for use in wideband amplification and will develop a Bi-doped fibre amplifier for wideband telecom applications. The project will begin with spectroscopic study of Bi-doped fibre properties, before proceeding to detailed specification of the amplifier architecture, and characterisation of its key properties in terms of bandwidth, gain, output power, and noise figure. The amplifier performance will be evaluated in transmission testing of high speed, wideband signals over extended distances.
