Paper Abstract

The bandwidth, gain, saturation power and noise of the erbium-doped fiber-amplifier (EDFA) are reviewed in the context of high-speed optical communication systems. Recent experiments which have used EDFA postamplifiers, repeaters and preamplifiers to enhance the performance of fiber-optic systems are discussed.
