Abstract

Design characterization of a wavelength division multiplexed erbium doped fiber ring laser using an ITU-T signal source at ?30dBm/channel input signal level, a splitter, 980nm and 1480nm pumping lasers in bidirectional pumping scheme with 250mW pump powers and two double pass EDFAs with 10m and 20m lengths at room temperature, a circulator and a gain flattening filter (GFF). An average gain of 34.45dB and noise figure of 8dB (maxima) is on optimization to provide a uniform gain over 70nm.
