A one-stage erbium ASE source that has an 80 nm flat bandwidth is demonstrated. The ASE source is realised in a 37 m erbium-doped fibre with a 1480 nm laser diode and a 980 nm laser diode as forward and backward pumps respectively. High output power up to 13.5 dBm is obtained with a total pump power of 95.7 mW.
