Abstract
Gain equalization of an amplifier is performed by introducing spectrally designed Bragg gratings in the mid-stage of a dual-stage erbium-doped fiber amplifier. The long-haul performances of the amplifier are evaluated using a 50 km recirculating loop. The results show a clear improvement of the transmission quality when equalizing the gain.
