Paper Abstract

New type of gain flattening filter for WDM systems is considered. It is based on the use of nonlinear Fabry-Perot interferometer as an amplitude mask in the Fourier-synthesis of short optical pulses. Results of numerical simulation show that the flat broadband gain spectrum of EDFA can be obtained in the proposed scheme by means of applying additional holding beams of mW powers.
