Paper Abstract

Current trends in both long haul transmission and optical networks indicate no slowing down in the move towards increased capacity and network complexity. These requirements have highlighted the limitations of the digital techniques that are the backbone of the current technology. Optical amplifiers offer potential solutions to many of these. This paper reviews the operation of these amplifiers, the current state of their development, and the future prospects for deployment.
