Paper Abstract

This communication deals with optical noise measurements of an erbium-doped fiber amplifier. The output quantum noise depends on the amplified spontaneous emission power because no input signal is applied. Thanks to a noise simulation, we have been able to deduce the internal gain G of the doped fiber and the spontaneous emission factor nsp.
