Abstract : Cross saturation characteristics are investigated in broadband 1.48 micron pumped and 980nm pumped, gain-shaped EDFAs. Gain-shaping is shown to give a more uniform spectral gain compression on saturation. In addition room temperature spectral gain hole-burning is observed for the first time.
