Optical link design for minimum power consumption and maximum capacity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference publication

Abstract

Using a well-established analytic nonlinear signal-to-noise ratio noise model we show that there are very simple, fibre independent, amplifier gains which minimize the total energy requirement for amplified systems. Power savings of over 50% are shown to be possible by choosing appropriate amplifier gain and output power.
