Paper Abstract

In this paper, gain and noise characteristics of gain-clamped Fabry-Perot lasing erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) is investigated in detail when reflective wavelength and reflectivity of the fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) are selected different values. The relationships between gain and noise performance of the gain-clamped EDFA and the selection ofFBG parameters such as reflectivity and reflective wavelength are investigated and analyzed. It is found via numerical simulation that the selection of FBG parameters has important influence on the performance of the EDFA. The results obtained in this paper can provide significant datum and reference for optimizing and improving the performance of all-optical gain-clamped EDFA.
