Signal power asymmetry optimisation for optical phase conjugation using Raman amplification

Rosa, Paweł, Le, Son Thai, Rizzelli, Giuseppe, Tan, Mingming and Ania-Castañón, Juan Diego (2015). Signal power asymmetry optimisation for optical phase conjugation using Raman amplification. Optics Express, 23 (25), pp. 31772-31778.


We numerically optimise in-span signal power asymmetry in different advanced Raman amplification schemes, achieving a 3% asymmetry over 62 km SMF using random DFB Raman laser amplifier. We then evaluate the impact of such asymmetry on the performance of systems using mid-link OPC by simulating transmission of 7 x 15 Gbaud 16QAM Nyquist-spaced WDM-PDM signals.
