An optical power amplifier and a laser source are demonstrated at 1.5 μm. A diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser is used as the pumping source for an Er/Yb co-doped gain medium. The power scaling advantages of this approach are demonstrated. Up to +21 dBm of output power is obtained from the Er/Yb amplifier and up to +19 dBm is obtained from the laser source. The Er/Yb power amplifier was deployed in a 42-channel AM link with 40 km of fiber, and an optical loss budget of 18 dBm was demonstrated
