Paper Abstract

Optical fiber Raman amplifiers are well suited for application in optical DWDM systems and networks. Instantaneous pump depletion due to different pump power requirement of bit 1's and bit 0's will induce extra optical noise and cross talk. This paper analyzes this kind ofnoise source and presents simulation results of the dependence of optical SNR drop on fiber length, bit rates and channel numbers.
