Abstract

In this experiment we propose a coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) transmission system that uses a new hybrid, two-stage EDFA/SOA amplifier. The hybrid amplifier is a combination of cascaded erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs) and semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs). This amplifier design is capable of providing a nearly flat gain of over 80 nm. The hybrid amplifier had been modeled using an OptiSystem version 9 modeling tool produced by OptiWave and is integrated into a CWDM transmission system with two spans of 100 km transmission distance.
