Paper Abstract

WDM systems require some means to lock the gain of surviving channels when one or several channels are added or dropped. The pump loss method is particularly interesting but, to our knowledge, has not been applied to multiplestage amplifiers. This paper reports on a modified pump loss technique for the gain locking of dual-stage amplifiers.
