Abstract : Recently there has been considerable interest in the amplification of solitons with the use of Er-doped fiber amplifiers because of their possible application in long distance optical communication systems. Among the many advantages of this type of active fiber are the high gain (> 30 dB) in the 1500 nm region, the wide gain bandwidth (in the order of 30 nm), the polarization independent gain and the high saturation output power.
