The ASE interpolation method is used to measure gain, NF, and key parameters for optical fiber amplifier evaluation. With WDMNF analysis function, up to 1024 channels of multiplexed signals can simultaneously be tested. An ASE level for NF measurements is calculated by using a curve-fit function for each WDM channel. The curve-fit and source spontaneous emission (SSE) suppress function enhance a measurement accuracy.
