Paper Abstract

A semi-analytical expression of double backward Rayleigh scattering (DRB) noise in a backward-pumped distributed fiber Raman amplifier (B-DFRA) is derived. A receiver is assumed to follow the B-DFRA, and various electrical noise terms in the receiver are compared with the DRB noise term which is shown dominating under elevated Raman on-off gain. An equivalent receiver sensitivity is introduced as a comprehensive measure of B-DFRA performance.
