Abstract

We have investigated the system performance of an experimental Praseodymium Doped Fiber Amplifier in an optical transmission system operating at 1.3 µm. Experimental evaluation of the PDFA, based on Bit Error Rate (BER) measurements, is presented for the PDFA used as a booster amplifier, configured in a copropagating scheme, as a function of both wavelength and optical input power. The performance is analyzed for both NRZ and RZ modulation format at a bitrate of 10 Gbit/s. Experimental analysis of the polarization sensitivity and saturation behavior of the PDFA is also presented.
