Abstract

Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA) is used for a 2.5Gbps Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) transmission in O to L-band (1271-1611 nm). Analysis of the proposed topology is conducted using Optisystem software. In this paper, discussions on the gain spectrum and the quality of signal of an optically amplified 18 channel system are provided. A wideband travelling wave SOA which operates as an inline amplifier resulted in wide 3 dB bandwidth of 200 nm. The overall quality of signal at the receiver is evaluated with the Q factor value. Better performance based on Q factor analysis is obtained at larger lengths of the first fiber span and a flat gain over 11 CWDM channels is obtained.
