Paper Abstract

In this work we have tested characteristics of EDFA based on a single-mode Er-doped fiber, pumped at 1480 nm by two-stage Raman fiber converter. As an active media of Raman fiber converter a single-mode fiber with phosphorus doped core was used. The conversion efficiency of Raman converter was measured to be 36%. Output power of EDFA as high as 26 dBm was achieved at wavelengths 1554 and 1582 nm corresponding to C and L-band of WDM systems.
