EDFA – Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifier

The EDFA is a high-power Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifier for optical signal amplification in C and L bands. It is a versatile instrument with three control modes: constant power, constant current and constant gain mode.

Our MATRIQ Series of optical test instruments offer uncompromised performance in a compact, stackable design and comes with intuitive software controls and simple USB and Ethernet connectivity.


high output power EDFA

High output power

Get up to 24.5 dBm amplified output power for all your high-power requirements.

0.01pm tuning resolution

Constant power output mode

With built-in closed-loop power monitoring, the EDFA can operate in the constant power output mode to stabilize fluctuating input power.

excellent gain flatness EDFA

High gain flatness

The EDFA-1002 model offers a high gain flatness of less than + 2.5 dB for high quality, low distortion amplification of broadband signals.
