Paper Abstract

A single stage, bi-directionally pumped Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier is studied, using a scheme that reduces the counter propagating ASE, avoiding self saturation due to ASE. The amplifier is numerically simulated and experimentally characterized. Gain, saturation and polarization dependence measurements are carried to compare with simulated results. Transient response is simulated to verify the amplifier performance in cable television distribution network.
