I added some factual information about the LOA, developed by Genoa, where I worked in the past. Genoa no longer exists, and the LOA is no longer fabricated. Why was my edit removed? LS
- I was on vandal/POV patrol monitering huge lists of edits. It noticed the pov word "unfortunetely". Just remove that word and it will be fine. Thanks.Voice of AllT|@|ESP 21:29, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
- Done. Thanks for the vigilance. LS
Correct? The article states: "As the signal power increases, or the pump power increases, the inversion level will reduce and thereby the gain of the amplifier will be reduced"
Will the inversion level really reduce when the pump power increases? Shouldn't it be: "As the signal power increases, or the pump power decreases, the inversion level will reduce and thereby the gain of the amplifier will be reduced"
on proposed submerge of the Raman amplification into Optical Amplifier
I'd rather suggest merging Raman amplification with Raman scattering#Stimulated Raman scattering and Raman amplification article for the following reasons:
- Raman amplification currently restates Raman scattering# Stokes and anti-Stokes part of article - Optical amplifier article is currently devoted to the telecoms, while Raman amplification generally has a wider range of applications

Merge of EDWA into optical amplifier
This sentence: "SOAs have a more rapid gain response, which is in the order of 1 to 100ps." seems a little contextually isolated as there's no mention of what the "gain response" of VCSOAs is. -- Dougher (talk) 17:38, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
