Paper Abstract

In this work, we use evolutionary techniques to optimize the design of Distributed Fiber Raman Amplifier (DFRA) cascades inserted in WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) optical networks. Applying genetic algorithms to a cascade of 10 DFRAs, each link being 50 km-long, we achieved a gain ripple less than ± 0.5 dB at the end of the cascade for a bandwidth of 80 nm using 8 pump signals.
