Optical amplifier technologies in new generation optical systems

Payne, D.N. and Laming, R.I. (1992) Optical amplifier technologies in new generation optical systems At OEC'92: 4th Optoelectronics Conference. 15 - 17 Jul 1992.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


The erbium-doped fibre amplifier (EDFA) has developed rapidly since its announcement in 1987. The EDFA is now established as a key component for future high-speed, silica-based optical fibre communication networks operating at a wavelength of 1.55µm. Its major attributes are high gain, high efficiency, low noise and potential multichannel operation with low interchannel crosstalk. Expected applications are as fibre power-amplifiers in transmission systems and distribution networks, as signal repeaters in point-to-point optical links, as fibre pre-amplifiers in amplifier/receiver combinations and as distributed fibre amplifiers for soliton propagation.
