RIN and transmission performance improvement using second order and broadband first order forward Raman pumping

Iqbal, Md Asif, Tan, Mingming, El-Taher, Atalla and Harper, Paul (2017). RIN and transmission performance improvement using second order and broadband first order forward Raman pumping. IN: UNSPECIFIED 2017 Opto-Electronics and Communications Conference (OECC) and Photonics Global Conference (PGC), 2017-N . IEEE.


Low RIN bidirectionally pumped Raman amplification is studied. We investigate the importance of the 1st order forward pump generation technique and optimize the forward pump characteristics to achieve RIN comparable with backward only pumping and increased transmission reach.
