Paper Abstract

Erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFA’s) operate in the 1.5?m wavelength telecommunications window and have achieved high gain, high output power and near ideal noise performance. The feasibility of using semiconductor laser diodes to pump EDFA’s insures that EDFA’s are practical devices which will have great impact on optical communications as power boosters, optical repeaters and optical preamplifiers.
