Paper Abstract

We develop a simple method to measure the set of parameters of an erbium-doped fiber which is needed to elaborate the numeric model of an amplifier when a 980-nm pump is used. We start from the Rate Equations and field propagation equations for signal and pump and shows the necessity of the attenuation coefficients at low powers for pump and signal and the knowledge of four parameters (defined as A, B,C, D) which include cross sections and overlap factors for signal and pump, erbium-doped concentrations, lifetime, and effective area. Our experimental procedure allows measuring the ABCD parameters without the knowledge of all parameters of a fiber. The ABCD parameters obtained experimentally were applied to a computer program to calculate the characteristics of amplifiers and then the calculation results were compared with the experimental characteristics of amplifiers. The comparison showed reasonably good agreement of the calculated and measured characteristics.
