  Abstract:

  The most important area of activity in research into fiber

  lasers continues to be the erbium-doped fiber amplifier for

  optical communications systems; complementary activities

  include work on ultrafast erbium lasers, soliton transmission

  and narrow-linewidth/tunable lasers in the 1.5 um band. The

  development of in-fiber Bragg gratings has contributed greatly

  to progress in these areas. In contrast, progress in optical

  fiber amplifiers at 1.3 um has been slow, and the future for

  fiber-based amplifier technology at this and other wavelengths

  is uncertain. Of activities not related to communication, the

  development of new laser transitions in the 2-4 um region

  has the most practical significance.
