Abstract
A gain-clamped double-pass L-band EDFA with high clamped-gain and low noise figure is demonstrated using a ring laser. The broadband FBG operating at L-band region is used to retro-pass the test signal back into the system for gain enhancing. A short length of forward pumped EDF is incorporated in front of the double-pass amplifier to achieve a low noise figure. The gain clamping is achieved by routing the backward ASE into the feedback loop to create ring laser. The gain is clamped at 26.8 dB from -40 to -16 dBm with a gain variation of less than b0.1 dB at variable optical attenuator setting of 0 dB. The corresponding noise figure varies from 5.0 to 5.3 dB, which is relatively lower compared with that of conventional double-pass amplifier.
