Abstract: The performance of Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) depends on various parameters like, Er+3 doping concentration, active fiber length, pump power, pumping wavelength etc. In this paper, the analysis of gain and noise figure (NF) of EDFA is done at different pump power (10, 50, & 100mw) and at different fiber length (10, 30, & 50m) for different pumping configuration i.e. forward pumping, backward pumping, and bidirectional pumping operating in C-band at high data rate.
Keywords: Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA), Erbium Doped Fiber (EDF), Gain, Noise Figure (NF).
