Optimization of discrete Raman amplifiers for different kinds of fibers

J.D. Ania-Castañón, S.K. Turitsyn

Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputConference publication


We present an analysis of the performance of backward-pumped discrete Raman amplifier modules designed for simultaneous amplification and dispersion and/or dispersion slope compensation, both in single-channel and in multi-channel systems. Optimal module parameters are determined within a realistic range of pump and signal powers.
