Abstract

We report a new model of a high-concentration erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) accounting for the statistical nature of the migration and up-conversion processes. By fitting experimental results, we conclude that the statistical model shows better applicability for the characterization of high-concentration EDFAs than the model accounting for the homogeneous upconversion and pair-induced quenching.
