Abstract

We analyze the sideband multiwave mixing process of an audio-frequency-modulated signal in an erbium-doped-fiber amplifier. The nearly resonant interaction of an audio-frequency-modulated signal with the doped erbium ions results in multiwave mixing, which induces the generation of new sideband frequencies. We show that the input signal is distorted by such a multiwave mixing process. The condition to reduce the distortion of an input modulated signal in an erbium-doped-fiber amplifier is evaluated.
