Paper Abstract

Over the last few years the erbium-doped fibre amplifier has emerged as the preferred amplifier for use in transmission systems operating around 1.55 μm. This is due to its high fibre-to-fibre gain, polarisation-insensitivity, quantum-limited 3dB noise figure, low crosstalk and high operating bandwidth. This paper will discuss the characteristics of erbium-doped fibre amplifiers, highlight their advantages and review current applications.
