Paper Abstract

The optimal pump period for the least total pump power required for the long-haul transmission system with periodically pumped distributed erbium-doped fiber amplifier is studied numerically. The pump power of the distributed erbium-doped fiber amplifier is minimized with the optimal doping density. It is found that the optimal pump period depends only slightly on the total transmission length.
