Paper Abstract

Design criteria for two-stage gain-shifted erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (GS-EDFAs) determined for multiwavelength operation at the 1580 nm wavelength band are presented. In order to achieve a flat gain and low noise figure, special care must be taken when selecting erbium-doped fiber lengths, pump configuration and pump powers.
