Transmission Performance Improvement Using Broadband Incoherent Counter-Pumped Distributed Raman Amplification


We propose a novel dual-order counter-pumped distributed Raman amplification technique using broadband incoherent 1st-order pump to suppress RIN transfer and improve Q-factor and transmission reach by 0.3dB and 833km respectively compared with conventional narrowband pumping.
