An S-band gain-clamped erbium-doped fiber amplifier module, employing a fiber Bragg grating to serve as a reflected element for lasing a saturated tone injected into the module by forward optical feedback method, is proposed and investigated experimentally. Moreover, the performance and behavior of the gain and noise figure in the proposed gain-clamped S-band fiber amplifier have also been discussed in the effectively wavelength range of 1478 to 1520 nm.
