A 24 dB gain bismuth-doped fiber amplifier at 1430 nm pumped by a 65 mW commercial laser diode at 1310 nm is reported for the first time (to our knowledge). A 3 dB bandwidth of about 40 nm, a noise figure of 6 dB, and a power conversion efficiency of about 60% are demonstrated. The temperature behavior of the gain spectrum is examined.
