Raman amplifier can be thought as more of a loss compensator than an amplifier. Hence we normally expect all the signals to come out of the amplifier with same signal strength with which they entered it. For that we ideally require a flat gain profile. By adjusting the powers and wavelengths of multiple pumps employed this profile is achieved. Obtaining… (More)
