Paper Abstract

The utilization of multiple wavelength domains in one transmission system has become a significant trend in modern opto-telecommunications due to the growing demand for transmission capacity. To realize parallel 1550/1310 nm transmission, new 1310 nm amplification techniques are needed, such as the 1310 nm Raman amplifier. In the paper, we investigate the performance of three different configurations of the 1310 nm QD laser based Raman amplifier. In the polarization multiplexed co-propagating configuration we obtained a gain of 9 dB, while it was reduced to 8 dB in the bi-directional configuration. The highest gain was achieved in the polarization multiplexed counter-propagating configuration, with a gain of over 16 dB. The presented results open the way for the optimization of the 1310 nm Raman amplifier’s architecture and the enhanced utilization of Raman amplifiers in telecommunication systems.
