Abstract

Frequency and timing noise added in a linear optical amplifier of gain <i>G</i> grows as (<i>G</i>-1)/<i>G</i>. Provided that the pulse is initially in a coherent state, the output frequency and timing noise cannot exceed twice the input value. It is also shown that, in a transmission line with zero net gain and loss, the frequency and timing noise added in the lossy medium is equal to or larger than the noise added in the amplifier.
