Optical burst amplification in a gain-stabilized amplifier may generate complex gain dynamics with nonlin-
ear behavior. This phenomenon is thoroughly investigated by using a theoretical model and dedicated ex-
periments. Design guidelines for optimized devices avoiding optical burst transmission impairments are
proposed. © 2007 Optical Society of America

Optical burst transmission is a very promising way
to implement Internet Protocol traffic by WDM and
to guarantee payload transparency as well as a more
efficient bandwidth utilization with respect to other
