High-Power Erbium Optical Amplifiers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Although the majority of recent interest in the erbium optical amplifier has focused on the optical amplifier as a relatively low power, high-gain, in-line repeater, there is increasing interest in very high-power (>+20 dBm) optical amplifiers in a portion of the optical network to provide alternative systems architectures. Uses for high-power optical amplifiers include postamplifiers for long-haul repeaterless links1 head-end amplifiers for specific CATV distribution architectures2, and power amplifiers for lxN lossless splitters.
