Based on the physical features of Raman amplification, we propose a three-step modelling scheme based on neural networks (NN) and linear regression. Higher accuracy, less data requirements and lower computational complexity are demonstrated through simulations compared with the pure NN-based method. ©2022 The Author(s)

Introducing Load Aware Neural Networks for Accurate Predictions of Raman Amplifiers

A new NN model is introduced that can predict both gain and ASE noise profiles in Raman amplifiers with high accuracy under any load conditions and is shown to have higher accuracy when the line system is not fully loaded.

Highly Accurate Measurement-Based Gain Model for Constant-Pump EDFA for non-Flat WDM Inputs

We develop a simple and accurate measurement-based model to predict the gain of wideband erbium-doped fiber amplifiers with a root mean square error of 0.05 dB, lower than state-of-the-art models

Robust, compact, and flexible neural model for a fiber Raman amplifier

In this paper, a novel robust, compact, and flexible neural-network model for a fiber Raman amplifier (FRA) is presented. The model can be used in various applications with promising accuracy and low

Merit of Raman Pumping in Uniform and Uncompensated Links Supporting NyWDM Transmission

We propose a method to quantitatively evaluate the improvement of the optical signal-to-nose ratio (OSNR) enabled by Raman pumping in hybrid Raman/erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (HFA) for

Raman amplification has enabled dramatic increases in the reach and capacity of lightwave systems. This tutorial explains why, starting with the fundamental properties of gain from stimulated Raman

Machine Learning Techniques in Optical Communication

It is experimentally demonstrated that if the laser phase noise shape strongly deviates from the Lorentzian, phase noise tracking algorithms employing rate equation-based SSM result in a significant performance improvement compared to traditional approaches using digital phase-locked loop.

GNPy: an open source application for physical layer aware open optical networks

GNPy is validated by feeding it with data from the network controller and comparing the results to experimental measurements on mixed-fiber, Raman-amplified, multivendor scenarios over the full C-band, showing excellent accuracy in predicting both the optical signal-to-noise ratio and the generalized signal- to-no noise ratio (GSNR).
