Abstract

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 multichannel systems. Optimal module parameters are determined within a realistic range of pump and signal powers.
