Experimental validation of OSNR enhancement utilizing hybrid Raman/Erbium fiber amplifiersMicrowave and Optical Technology Letters (2005)
AbstractThe impact of employing a hybrid Raman/Erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) in a transmission system is demonstrated by considering the optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) performance. The gain flatness of hybrid Raman/EDFA is maintained below 1.2 dB from 1530 to 1565 nut through careful design of both amplifiers. The enhancement of OSNR is measured at around 5 dB, compared to the conventional EDFA approach with a 28-dB span loss. (c) 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
