As in bulk amplifiers, the onset of nonlinear effects when amplifying ultra-short pulses in fiber amplifiers has been pointed out and investigated by several groups, specifically in erbium-doped fiber amplifiers ( EDFAs) [ l-3 1. Researchers have in fact used the Kerr nonlinearity in conjunction with group velocity dispersion in order to create even shorter… CONTINUE READING
