The erbium doped fibre amplifier (EDFA) [1] has seen rapid development and is now established as a key component in future optical networks. To date, EDFA development has been driven by specific requirements, primarily the single-channel, point-to-point fibre links. There are, however, many more applications which may require, for example, either broadband or narrowband amplifiers and signal-processing functions. In addition, non-telecommunication applications can benefit enormously by the use of EDFAs
