The authors present a rigorous and self-contained noise analysis of an optical amplifier based on the statistics of the input source field and the amplified spontaneous emission field of the amplifier. The method enables us to obtain the frequency dependence of the output electrical noise power, which has not been derived in previous studies of optical amplifier noise based on the photon statistics master equation. The authors characterise for the first time the noise of an optical amplifier in combination with a super-fluorescent source, taking into account the frequency dependence of the gain and the presence of optional optical filters.
