Erbium doped fiber is a basic element of an optical amplifier. The estimation of fiber parameters set is the main problem of designing its application. The knowledge of fiber core radius, the overlap factors representing the fraction of pump power and signal within the doped region, doping concentration and fiber glass type are necessary for this task. The problem is significant, because fiber producers do not print full data or the printed data do not agree with facts. The presented solution is their identification with typical printed and measured data using in mathematical model of quantum and wave optics. The elaborated method was tried on 3M active fiber samples, effects show that its correctness is about 15%.
