The effect of unwanted optical loss varying over 15 dB is automatically offset with an erbium-doped fiber amplifier used in an optical feedback configuration. The loss compensation is possible for signal wavelengths over a 13 nm range centered at about 1550 nm. The system dynamic range for loss fluctuation frequencies is zero to several kilohertz. The proposed loss compensation scheme simultaneously provides an automatic gain control function that stabilizes the gain against slow changes in input signal power or pump power
