Abstract

We present a rate-equation model that accounts for polarization hole burning in erbium-doped fiber amplifiers. This model yields analytical expressions for the polarization sensitivity of the amplifier for arbitrary signal polarization states. We investigate the influence of the birefringence properties of the fiber and calculate the average polarization properties of an amplifier chain.
