optical amplifier type
Optical amplifier type
  • 2 major classes:
  • Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers (SOA)

conventional SOA

GC-SOA (Gain-Clamped SOA)

LOA (Linear Optical Amplifier)

  • Fiber Optical amplifiers (FOA)Rare earth-Doped Fiber Amplifiers

Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA) : C, L-Band

Thulium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers (TDFA) : S-Band

Praseodymium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers (PDFA) : O-Band

other optical amplifier type
Other optical amplifier type
  • Not based on stimulated emission but on nonlinear effects
  • Fiber Raman Amplifiers

Discrete Raman Amplifiers

Distributed Raman Amplifiers (DRA)

  • Hybrid EDFA/Raman Amplifier
edfa configuration
EDFA Configuration

Co-propagating pump= lower noise butlower output power

Counter-propagating pump= higher outputpower but higher noise

output vs wavelength
Output vs wavelength

Amplification between 1.53 and 1.56 um.

rare earth er tm pr doped fiber amplifiers
Rare earth (Er, Tm, Pr) -Doped Fiber Amplifiers
  • Gain band:

Er (C, L-Band), Tm (S-Band), Pr (O-Band)

76 nm (1532-1608 nm) record gain bandwidth in single band configuration [M. Yamada et al.,OFC’98PD].

- Flat gain: 21 dB, Noise figure: 7 dB

- Gain equalizer: two MZ filters with FSR of 32 and 120 nm

stimulated scattering
Stimulated Scattering
  • is transferring energy from the incident wave to another, scattered wave at lower frequency (longer wavelength) with the small energy difference being release as phonons.
  • The incident wave can be seen as a pump wave.
  • (Scattered waves are called Stokes waves)
stimulated scattering11
Stimulated Scattering
  • 2 types:- Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) - Stimulated Brillouin Scattering (SBS)
  • In WDM systems, SBS has almost no effect
distributed raman amplifier dra
Distributed Raman Amplifier (DRA)
  • DRA is based on Raman Scattering.
  • A large pump is co-launched at a lower wavelength than the signal to be amplified
fiber raman amplifiers
Fiber Raman Amplifiers
  • Gain band: 1.3~1.7 um (tunable by pump wavelength)
  • 132 nm record gain bandwidthin double band configuration has been achieved [H. Masuda et al., ECOC’99].

- Combination of Distributed Raman amplifiers (DRA) and discrete Raman

- Two-gain-band Raman amplifier
