Paper Abstract

In this paper a new kind of device - a gradient distributed fiber amplifier -is proposed and analysed. In such an amplifier the concentration of the dopant ions increases along its length in the direction of pump power decrement, in a way that ensures nearly constant signal gain coefficient in every point of the fiber. Hence, an optimal amplification configuration that simultaneously minimises the influence of the background attenuation, the soliton self-frequency shift and the third order dispersion on the solitary signal pulses can be chosen and maintained in such device. Although in the general case the perturbations cannot be completely canceled4 ,the results of the computer model clearly show that a gradient fiber amplifier can be designed as a transparent transport media for high-speed, long distance optical fiber communications. Keywords: optical communication lines, solitons, Er3-doped fiber amplifiers.
