Paper Abstract

The fiber Raman amplifier employs the intrinsic properties of silica fiber to obtain the amplification, thus they use the transmission fiber as the amplification medium, where the gain is created along the transmission line. The amplification is realized by Stmulated Raman Scattering (SRS). This nonlinear process occurs when a sufficiently powerful pump is within the same fiber as the signal. In this paper, we showed experimental and numerical analysis of SRS in optical fibers. We obtain a continuous spectral when we plot the energy content in each Stokes sublines with the wavelength, which are self-pump between them. The numerical results are in agreement with the experimental results, just as the waveform in the time of optical fiber end and the energy is transferred from the signal pump to the Stokes sublines. With the simulations, we can obtain several parameters of this optical amplifier like the optical fiber effective length to obtain the amplification.
