Describes applications of traveling-wave laser amplifiers (TWLAs) in subcarrier-multiplexed distribution systems for both frequency-modulated (FM) and amplitude-modulated vestigial-sideband (AM-VSB) video signal distribution. The characteristics of a 1300-nm facet-angled and antireflection-coated TWLA are described. Analytical carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR) characterizations of subcarrier-multiplexed systems employing TWLAs are given. Experimental results of using TWLAs in multichannel FM and AM-VSB video signal systems are described. The potential optical-reflection problems associated with the residual reflectivities of optical fiber connectors and splices while using TWLAs are briefly described
