Rosa, Paweł, Rizzelli, Giuseppe, Tan, Mingming, Harper, Paul and Ania-Castañón, Juan Diego (2015). Characterisation of random DFB Raman laser amplifier for WDM transmission. Optics Express, 23 (22), pp. 28634-28639.


We perform a full numerical characterisation of half-open cavity random DFB Raman fibre laser amplifier schemes for WDM transmission in terms of signal power variation, noise and nonlinear impairments, showcasing the excellent potential of this scheme to provide amplification for DWDM transmission with very low gain variation.
