Approaching the optimum erbium-doped fibre amplifier (EDFA)

Richard I.Laming

Abstract

EDFAs are now established as key components for future high-speed communication networks. Research is therefore aimed at optimising the amplifier design. Current issues are optimal pump efficiency, spectral gain-shaping, material constraints and choice of pump wavelength.
