Abstract

In this paper, we present an accurate, fast, and easily implemented procedure for modeling erbium-doped waveguide amplifiers (EDWA's) with high concentration doping level. The model is shown to be in a very good agreement when compared with experimental results, and is used in a detailed analysis of a waveguide amplifier with 980-nm pumping.
