Measurement of ASE in an in-line EDFA


To achieve population inversion an EDFA uses stimulated emission process where incident photon and emitted photon have same phase. But, alongwith the stimulated emission that creates gain, the gain medium also produces spontaneous emission, which gives rise to the amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) spectrum of the amplifier []. In this paper we have… (More)
