Paper Abstract

We discuss various experimental methods for measurements of the optical gain, transparency wavelength and optical loss. We discuss existing methods as well as newly developed. It is also shown how this set of measurements allows for characterization of other laser parameters, such as linewidth enhancement factor, differential gain, and wavelength chirp. We illustrate how these techniques are used for improving the laser performance for different applications.
