On the physical origin of the 3dB noise figure limit in laser and parametric optical amplifiers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


The mature technology of laser optical amplification (LOA), now based on Er-doped fiber and semiconductor amplifiers, keeps on feeding progress in optical communications [1][2], Parametric (nondegenerate) optical amplification (POA), available in both SCAs and undoped fibers, also makes possible various signal processing functions [3][4].
