Abstract

In this paper, gain, noise and nonlinear performance characterization of cascaded broadband discrete Raman amplifiers with different gain fibre combinations is presented. We numerically demonstrate the design of a backward-pumped cascaded dual stage broadband (∼70 nm) discrete Raman amplifier with high gain (∼19 dB), low noise (∼ 6 dB noise figure) and lower nonlinear penalty by optimizing two different types of gain fibres.
