Raman Amplification in Fiber Optical Communication Systems (Optics and Photonics)


Optical fiber telecommunications depend upon light traveling great distances through optical fibers. As light travels it tends to

disperse and this results in some degree of signal loss. Raman amplification is a technique that is effective in any fiber to

amplify the signal light as it travels through transmission fibers, compensating for inevitable signal loss.* First comprehensive

guide to Raman amplification, a technique whose use has exploded since 1997 in order to upgrade fiber capacity;* ..
