The suitability for optical amplification in the C + L band of a new zirconiayttria-alumina-baria silica glass fiber is evaluated. The gain and noise figure are characterized using this fiber as the gain medium. A flat gain of 25 dB with a variation of less than 3 dB in the range of 1525 to 1565 nm with a significantly low noise figure less than 4.2 dB at small signal input power, are achieved using a short length of fiber with only 1 m. The performance of the amplifier can be improved with higher pump powers and longer fiber lengths. (C) 2019 Optical Society of America under the terms of the OSA Open Access Publishing Agreement
