Paper Abstract

The A. M. and F. M. noise mechanisms in a number of rare-earth doped fiber devices are reviewed. Spontaneous emission noise presents an ultimate limit to the performance of a number of fiber laser and amplifier devices and the paper concentrates primarily on this area. Important concepts are reviewed and experimental and theoretical data are presented.
