Paper Abstract

Simple analytical expressions for determining the characteristic time of a single EDFA and evaluating the 1 dB time response of a cascade of EDFA are given in a form of a difference equation. It is shown that the expressions are in remarkable agreement with the results obtained through solving numerically the differential equations for chains of EDFAs. Simulations of the transient time response to channel drop/add are also included.
