Product Overview:

High Power Erbium-Ytterbium Amplifier Overview:

These high power EYDFA co-doped fiber amplifiers are C-band erbium-ytterbium co-doped fiber amplifiers. They are simple to operate, affordable benchtop instruments for laboratory research or manufacturing test applications. These units provide the user with full control of the internal 976nm pump laser diode current levels. The user can also control the instrument in a gain feedback or power feedback mode. These high power amplifiers offer an intuitive front menu structure and control knob interface. They can also be operated using the RS232 rear panel interface or can be ordered with an ethernet interface (optional). LabVIEW based control software is available and ships free of charge. Please contact us if you would like to view the Operating Manual or see the remote interface command set.

EYDFA Utilizes Telcordia Qualified High Reliability Components:

These amplifier utilize high power and high reliability Telcordia qualified 976nm pump lasers as well as Telcorida qualified combiners. The principal of operation is the laser light from the pump wavelengths and power level excite the erbium and ytterbium ions embedded in the fiber from their ground state to achieve the resultant high excitation levels, and the commensurate high gain levels of up to 35 dB. Because they are polarization maintaining amplifiers, they amplify the light polarized along the slow axis of the fiber. Each high power EDFA unit has integrated isolators for the intput and the output.

Careful attention to component selection and circuit board design allow these 1550nm range EDFA's to produce high gain at a low noise level. Noise levels of < 5 dB with a very flat gain profile over the C-Band make these instruments ideal for many applications.
