Paper Abstract

In this paper noise performance of Raman amplifiers is analyzed. Efficient model and methods for calculation of noises impact in Raman amplifier of various designs (forward, backward and bidirectional pump schemes) are presented. Developed models are taking into account features of not uniform amplifier span and cascaded amplifier spans. An analytical solution for ASE noise allows to reduce time expenses at simulations. Analytical and simplified expressions for DRB noise can be used to investigate qualitative dependence from different factors. Area of application developed models was defined as distributed Raman amplifier with standard single mode fiber.
