Determination of optimal pumping configuration for an L-band EDFA with 980-nm LD and ASE pumpsMicrowave and Optical Technology Letters (2003)
AbstractL-band gain improvement through amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) pumping was conducted. For an L-band amplifier system employing ASE to improve gain, pumping the system counter-directionally with ASE and codirectionally with 980 mn would yield the best overall performance in terms of gain. Gain improvement as high as 6 dB was attained. (C) 2003 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
