Abstract The paper presents experimental study of the major erbium-doped fibre amplifier (EDFA) features such as gain at low signal and gain saturation by an application of different erbium-doped optical fibres (EDFs). The main objective of the research is to estimate how the performance of EDFA varies depending on the length of doped fibre, pumping configuration scheme, as well as excitation source power. It is shown that a high gain coefficient of 16–20 dB can be practically achieved.
