|Abstract:||A co-axial dual core resonant leaky optical fiber (DCRLF) is designed for inherent gain equalization of S-band erbium doped fiber amplifier (EDFA). Resonance tail of leakage loss of the fiber into the S-band region is utilized to flatten the gain. We have numerically studied the effect of various design parameters and their fabrication tolerances on gain flattening. We show 23.5 dB flat gain with ± 0.9 dB ripple over 30 nm bandwidth (1490-1520 nm) using 120 mW pump. The study should be useful in designing optical fiber amplifiers for optical communication system employing wavelength division multiplexing. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
