Noise measurements in optical amplifiers
Author(s): Lionel Jacubowiez; Thierry Avignon; Nicolas Dubreuil; Marc Bondiou

Paper Abstract

We describe an experiment that allows advanced master students in optical science and engineering to understand noise measurements in optical amplifiers (e.g. Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers). Noise and signal are studied then measured in both electrical and optical domains. The degradation of the signal to noise ratio through EDFA's along a real or simulated long-haul optical link can also be studied.
