Abstract

A quasi-analytical solution for erbium-doped fiber amplifier rate equations is presented. Pump power at the amplifier output is used to predict signal and amplified spontaneous emission spectra. Results are shown to be in close agreement with the numerical solutions of the amplifier equations.
