Abstract

A synchronous Raman fiber amplifier is proposed which is pumped at a wavelength around 1.5 μm by output pulses from an erbium-doped fiber amplifier. This arrangement achieves an output optical peak power exceeding 200 mW and a 3-dB net gain bandwidth of 33 nm around 1.66 μm. The Raman fiber amplifier is useful for 1.6-μm-band OTDR as it can be used in live maintenance of optical transmission networks.
