Paper Abstract

Stable pulse propagation in optical fiber transmission systems with periodically inserted on the line semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA) is considered. For describing the properties of SOA, in our work we take account of a semiclassical model, based on interaction of the light with a two-level quantum system. The general parameters of this model are the small-signal gain, the linewidth enhancement factor, the carrier lifetime and the saturation energy. The pulse propagation in fiber is described with Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation which we solve numerically considering the losses in optical fiber and the periodical restoration of the amplitude in SOA.
