A detailed design scheme is formulated to analyze a novel T-structured Multicore Erbium-Doped Fibre amplifier (MC-EDFA)
for future interconnects application within the C-band wavelength. The Fibre amplifier is investigated for different pitches,
whereas the cladding radius (Rca) and the core radius (Rco) are kept constant throughout the analysis at 125 µm and 10 µm,
respectively. The performance of MC-EDFA is analyzed in terms of Gain, Noise figure (NF), and inter-core crosstalk (IC-XT)
for three different pitches- 25 µm, 28 µm, and 35 µm. It is found that the novel T-structured MC-EDFA can deliver a
noteworthy crosstalk profile by optimizing the pitch.
