Bandwidth Extension in a Mid-Link Optical Phase Conjugation


In this paper, we investigate various designs of distributed Raman amplifier (DRA) to extend amplification bandwidth in mid-link optical phase conjugation (OPC) systems and compare bands 191−197 THz and 192−198 THz giving a total bandwidth of 6 THz using a single wavelength pump. We demonstrate the use of highly reflective fiber Bragg grating (FBG) to minimize gain variation across a WDM grid by optimizing forward and backward pump powers as well as the wavelength of FBGs for original and conjugated channels. Finally, we also simulate OSNR and Kerr nonlinear reduction as a product of signals asymmetry and nonlinear phase shift (NPS) for all channels.
