Paper Abstract

We investigated the issue of dynamic gain control for multi-wavelength pumped broadband distributed Raman amplifiers. For the first time, we proposed that using a pair of fiber gratings in a section of the transmission fiber, a gain clamped broadband distributed fiber Raman amplifiers can easily be made through all optical method. The method is based on the utilization of the pumps’ interactions and uneven gain property along the fiber in the amplifier.
