A computer algorithm was developed to design chirped fiber Bragg grating (CFBG) reflectors to function as spectral flattening filter and reflector for double pass superfluorescent sources (SFS). An erbium doped fiber (EDF) pumped by a high power 1480 nm laser diode was used to produce amplified spontaneous emission (ASE). The integrated reflector and ASE were fabricated using the spectral property of CFBG. Results showed high power flat SFS spectral output from 1530 nm to 1560 nm.
