Fiber amplifiers and fiber lasers are integral components in modern optical communication systems and, furthermore, find applications in various fields such as medical devices, defense systems, and industrial processes. 

Designing and optimizing these devices require a deep understanding of their underlying physical principles, as well as the ability to simulate their performance accurately. 

VPIphotonics Design Suite offers advanced means for simulation of fiber amplifiers and fiber lasers. During the webinar, we will introduce the fiber models used for simulations and briefly discuss the rate equation model used to simulate rare-earth-doped fibers and the simulation model of Raman amplification in a transmission fiber. Also, we will show a few live demos of application examples utilizing these models to simulate a fiber laser and fiber amplifiers. Finally, we will discuss the simulation results and showcase how simulation can be leveraged to optimize system parameters.
