This paper proposes a new design methodology for discrete multi-pumped Raman amplifier. In a multi-objective optimization scenario, in a first step the whole solution-space is inspected by a CW analytical formulation. Then, the most promising solutions are fully investigated by a rigorous numerical treatment and the Raman amplification performance is thus(More)
This paper carries out a rigorous analysis of supercontinuum generation in an improved highly asymmetric microstructured fiber (MF) design. This geometry, defined simply as D-MF, has the advantage of being produced with a regular stacking and drawing technology. We have obtained birefringence values on the order of 4.87x10(-3) at the adopted pump wavelength(More)
In this paper we discuss the use of photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) as discrete devices for simultaneous wideband dispersion compensation and Raman amplification. The performance of the PCFs in terms of gain, ripple, optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) and required fiber length for complete dispersion compensation is compared with conventional dispersion(More)
We present a simultaneous optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) and differential group delay (DGD) monitoring method based on degree of polarization (DOP) measurements in optical communications systems. For the first time in the literature (to our best knowledge), the proposed scheme is demonstrated to be able to independently and simultaneously extract OSNR(More)
In this paper a novel approach to the twodi-mensional self-consistent solution of Schr?dinger and Poisson equations is implemented to calculate the free electron concentration and capacitance-voltage characteristics in semiconductor quantum wire transistors. The Schr?dinger equation is solved by the split operator method while a relaxation method was used(More)
This paper revisits the design of L and S band bridged loop-gap resonators (BLGRs) for electron paramagnetic resonance applications. A novel configuration is described and extensively characterized for resonance frequency and quality factor as a function of the geometrical parameters of the device. The obtained experimental results indicate higher values of(More)
In this paper, we propose an in-service method to simultaneously monitor both nominal and effective values of differential group delay (DGD) in wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) optical communication systems, in a per channel basis. The method is based on coherent heterodyne detection of the optical signal. We have demonstrated that the technique is(More)
