Spectral broadening due to fibre amplifier phase noise
G.J.Cowle, P.R.Morkel, R.I.Laming, D.N.Payne
We report, for the first time, measurements of signal spectral broadening caused by phase noise in an erbium doped fibre amplifier. The spectral broadening was found to be less than 20kHz. Thus it will not limit the performance of phase or frequency modulated coherent systems employing fibre amplifiers.
