Paper Abstract

An approach for modeling the saturated single-pass gain in an Ytterbium doped fiber amplifier has been proposed. This approach accounts for both two- and three-level schemes, as well as coupled spectral and power effects. A simple approximation considering an average value of depleted pump power over the fiber length allows to obtain analytic expressions for input and output pump, amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) and signal power in the fiber.
