54dB gain quantum-limited erbium-doped fibre amplifier

Laming, R.I., Zervas, M.N. and Payne, D.N. (1992) 54dB gain quantum-limited erbium-doped fibre amplifier At ECOC: 18th European Conference on Optical Communication, Germany. 27 Sep - 01 Oct 1992.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


It is shown that for practical pump powers ( 33dB) and low noise figure (3dB) cannot simultaneously be achieved with a conventional co-directionally-pumped EDFA. However, using a composite EDFA incorporating an isolator overcomes the problem and we demonstrate an amplifier with 51dB (54dB) gain and 3.1dB NF for only 45mW (93mW) of pump power.
