Phase noise of optical links i amplifiers is investigated. The amplifier ap significant contributor to the link phase noise aims at determining in which conditions the op noiseless. A comparison between Erbium Amplifiers and Booster Optical Amplifiers evolution of noise floor is finally related measurements. Keywords-phase noise; optical amplifiers BOA; noise figure; optical links; microwave opti I.
