Paper Abstract

An algorithm is discussed to achieve target gain and gain flatness in Raman amplifier through adjusting the pump wavelength and power distribution. It is convenient for Raman amplifier designer to decide the pump wavelength accounting of the trade-off between the gain flattening and gain efficiency. The algorithm based on both the effective interaction lengths and propagation equation, as well as its application in all-Raman Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system to dynamically adjust the gain and gain flatness are discussed. In this paper, we also give a fast numerical method to realize the simulation of the algorithm.
