EFFECT OF AMPLIFIER GAIN SHAPE ON OPTICAL NONLINEARITY PENALTIES

Abstract

The advent of erbium-doped-fiber amplifiers (EDFA) has revolutionized the field of optical communications in two ways. First, their large optical gain allows long-haul unregenerated systems with optical repeaters spaced more than 100 km. Second, their large bandwidth permits to increase the capacity by an order of magnitude by wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) several high bit rate channels.
