EA and RA optical fiber amplifiers

The optical amplifiers family includes preamplifiers, boosters and linear erbium doped amplifiers (EDFA), and also Raman amplifiers (RAU) with power up to 2 W

  • EDFA amplifiers with 1, 2 and 3 stages
  • Controls transient processes when adding channels
  • Low noise figure
  • Amplification control by a built-in attenuator
  • Flat amplifying spectrum in C-band
  • Raman amplifiers with pump power up to 2 W (33 dBm)
  • Stabilization modes for an output power and amplification factor

 

Erbium amplifiers increase the power of optical channels without an optoelectronic transformation. Amplification units have from one to three amplification stages; there is a possibility of inter stage access to connect dispersion compensators. Use of GFF filters provides a flat amplifying spectrum in C-band; a built-in attenuator allows adjusting an amplifying factor.
The light amplification by Raman amplifiers (RAU) is a distributed amplification of a signal in a telecommunication fiber with direct or opposite pumping from a powerful source(s) (up to 33 dBm) at 1455 nm wavelength.
