Paper Abstract

Erbium doped fiber amplifiers have been widely deployed for signal amplification in optical transmission systems. High performance amplifiers require erbium doped fiber with high power conversion efficiency and consistent flat gain spectrum. In addition, all impairments associated with EDF must be under good control. This paper reviews the current status and recent progress on erbium doped fibers, illustrates C and L-band spectral characteristics resulting from different doping compositions, presents some approaches for efficient high power amplifiers, and discusses some EDF nonlinear effects with examples.
