The issue of temporal pulse distortion occurring during amplification process in a 2-stage, fiber amplifier, operating in the eye-safe spectral region, is discussed. The amplifier was built in a Master Oscillator Power Amplifier (MOPA) configuration and seeded by a distributed feedback (DFB) laser providing nanosecond pulses at a repetition rate of 20 kHz. It operated at a wavelength of 1549.13 nm and generated over 200 mW of output power with a slope efficiency of up to 28%. The comparison between the calculated and measured results on saturation-induced pulse shape deformation, for ~300-ns pulses, is presented. The analyzed pulse shapes embraced rectangle, Gaussian, triangle and "M" letter.
