Paper Abstract

The applications of Raman amplifiers as repeater amplifiers or post transmitter amplifiers in a high density WDM system are theor-etically investigated. The limitation of amplifier gain and the existence of an optimum pump power which results in maximum amplif-ier gain are present. Based on the results, amplifier gains up to 50 dB and 20 dB are achievable for the uses as a repeater and a post transmitter amplifier respectively.
