Towards wide-bandwidth ultra-flat FOPAs

Gordienko, Vladimir, Stephens, Marc and Doran, Nick (2017). Towards wide-bandwidth ultra-flat FOPAs. IN: ICTON 2017 - 19th International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks. ESP: IEEE.


Fibre optical parametric amplifiers (FOPAs) offer the potential for high gain and >100 nm bandwidth at arbitrary wavelengths for increased transmission capacity. We will cover the main principles of the FOPA and discuss our approach to obtaining broad flat gain and performance improvement via simultaneous Raman amplification.
