Abstract: With the evolvement ofhigh speed and long distance data communication systems, conventional band erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (C-EDFAs) are getting more attention in recent times. Major advantage of the C-band EDFA is that it provides the user to realize a system with wide bandwidth of 40 nm. But, from the reported works, it is evident that for Gain enhancement in C-band using EDFA is reported with the use of multiple stages, multiple pumps, Gain flattening filters etc. However, these techniques suffered from high cost, complex techniques and low performance.Here enhancement process was done through the narrowband Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) or fiber reflectors mirrors. In this work, a conventional band erbium doped fiber amplifier is proposed with high gain and less noise figure by incorporating the two fiber bragg gratings (FBGs) for amplified spontaneous noise reinjection. Maximum ASE is emerged at 1565 nmfor the at -55 dBm carrier powers. Maximum gain is found out to be 48.16 dB with noise figure of 5.29 dBm.
