Recent Advances in Discrete Raman Amplifiers and their Applications to Wideband Optical Networks

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

Abstract

We consider recent advances in the design of discrete Raman amplifiers (DRAs) and their potential application to wideband optical networks. The performance of dual-stage DRAs is compared with conventional single-stage designs. The impact of Raman gain fibre nonlinearity in single-stage and dual-stage DRAs is evaluated and compared with conventional EDFA based systems.
