14 May 2018 Multistage single clad 2μm TDFA with a shared L-band pump source
Author Affiliations +
We report the experimental performance and simulation of a multiwatt two-stage TDFA using an L-band (1567 nm) shared pump source. We focus on the behavior of the amplifier for the parameters of output power Pout, gain G, noise figure NF, signal wavelength λs, and dynamic range. We measure the spectral performance of the TDFA for three specific wavelengths (λs= 1909, 1952, and 2004 nm) chosen to cover the low-, mid-, and upper-wavelength operating regions of the wideband amplifier. We also compare the performance of the two-stage shared pump TDFA with a one stage shared pump amplifier. Experimental results are in good agreement with simulation.
