Paper Abstract

This work presents a functional model of an optical amplifier, which uses the active fiber doped with erbium called EDFA (eng: Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier).The amplification obtained takes place entirely in optical domain without conversion to electric signals, how this happens in case of amplifiers SOA. However, with regard to the environment, in which works the optical amplifier (transmitters and receiver sets), it is useful to analyze suitable amplifier model in electric domain. For executing such model, it was proposed the delimitation of fiber parameters taking into account the threshold effects of amplification.
