Paper Abstract

A novel method based on combination of the bending and thermal characteristics of a new long-period fibre grating written on a photosensitive fibre by high-frequency CO2 laser pulses is proposed for the gain flattening of EDFAs. The gain profile was flattened to within ±0.7dB over a 32nm bandwidth.
