Evaluation of 160x10 Gbps Single & Hybrid Optical Amplifiers at 0.1 mw using EDFA-RAMAN-SOA
In this paper, single and hybrid amplifier configurations are implemented with FRA, SOA and EDFA amplifiers for 160 channel DWDM systems at 10Gbps and 25GHz frequency spacing for L-band. These configurations are transmitted and measured over different distances for 40, 80, 120, 160, 200 and 240km. The performance of single and hybrid optical amplifiers evaluated in terms of gain, output power, BER, eye height and Q factor. Among these setups Semiconductor Optical Amplifier Raman Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifier (SOA-Raman-EDFA) performed better than other optical amplifiers at all over the distance.
