Noise characteristics of erbium-doped fibre amplifier pumped at 980nm
We show that quantum-limited noise operation of an erbium-doped fibre amplifier is possible when pumped at 980nm. A noise figure of 2.9±0.4dB was measured for pump powers of only 5.8mW, consistent with a population inversion factor close to unity.

Abstract

We show that quantum-limited noise operation of an erbium-doped fibre amplifier is possible when pumped at 980nm. A noise figure of 2.9±0.4dB was measured for pump powers of only 5.8mW, consistent with a population inversion factor close to unity.
