Performance limits of erbium-doped fibre amplifiers due to internal Rayleigh backscattering

Performance limits of erbium-doped fibre amplifiers due to internal Rayleigh backscattering
Performance limits of erbium-doped fibre amplifiers due to internal Rayleigh backscattering
For gains above ~30dB internal Rayleigh backscattering deteriorates both amplifier gain and noise figure. In high gain applications, increasing the fibre NA and dopant confinement above a critical value is shown to be detrimental.

Abstract

For gains above ~30dB internal Rayleigh backscattering deteriorates both amplifier gain and noise figure. In high gain applications, increasing the fibre NA and dopant confinement above a critical value is shown to be detrimental.
