- Modeling light amplification in Er-doped single-mode fibers
- Fundamentals of noise in optical fiber amplifiers
- Photodetection of optically amplified signals
- Spectroscopic properties of erbium glass fibers
- Gain, saturation, and noise characteristics of EDFAs
- Device and system applications of EDFAs
In so doing, the book sheds light on many new frontiers of knowledge, such as inhomogeneous modeling and nonlinear photon statistics, and demonstrates the many broadening benefits of EDFAs, including their polarization insensitivity, temperature stability, quantum-limited noise figure, and immunity to interchannel crosstalk. With the demand for transoceanic and terrestrial communications growing at a steady rate of 25% a year, the arrival of Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers-destined to significantly expand the capabilities of today's hard-pressed lightwave technology-couldn't be more timely.
