A simple scheme for the calculation of the spectral gain and noise of a given EDFA is presented. The parameters of the model can be derived from measured data or from data supplied by the manufacturer. Measurements of the spectral gain at average inversions and ASE power densities provide enough information to describe an optical amplifier with sufficient(More)
A new technique is presented for obtaining upper and lower bounds on eigenvalues and eigenfunctions for linear integral equations. The method is unique in that the bounds are obtained by solving non-homogeneous equations. In order to solve the non-homogeneous equations, non-linear sequence-to-sequence transformations are used to accelerate convergence of(More)
