Paper Abstract

This paper reports the development of a 16-channel and a 8-channel wideband amplified optical power divider with erbium-doped fiber amplifier by using two high power 1480 nm pump LDs in a bidirectional pumping configuration. Over +16 dBm saturation output power was divided by a 16-channel distributed star coupler, and the signal output power from each port was higher than +3 dBm in 1530 nm to 1570 nm wavelength range. It was also determined that a 1 X 8 balanced or unbalanced tree coupler can be integrated into the EDFA module, this constitutes an active optical device for characterizing the optical communication system performance at different signal power levels.
