Abstract

An efficient Erbium-doped fiber amplifier configured in double-pass amplification scheme with chirped fiber Bragg grating as the reflector is presented in this paper. The proposed amplifier architecture is optimized and designed to work under consideration of low pump powers for remotely-pumped applications. The chirped fiber Bragg grating is used to reflect the amplified signal back to the Erbium-doped fiber and at the same time to compensate the effect of fiber dispersion. The proposed amplifier architecture is able to maintain gain of higher than 20 dB for small signals less than -23 dBm with 10 mW pump power only. The integrated function of loss and dispersion compensator in single black box is an attractive solution to be used as pre-amplifier.
