Abstract
A high-power tunable Raman Amplifier is presented. The seed signal (varying from 1118 nm to 1130 nm in wavelength) was generated in a tunable Raman oscillator and fed into the Raman amplification stage. A conversion efficiency of up to 86 % was achieved and a maximum output power of over 200 W was measured. The Raman gain coefficient for the amplifier fiber was measured to be 0.76× 10-hoch14 m/W. Furthermore, the measured output power was compared with values obtained from simple mathematical model and a good agreement up to the highest output power of amplified signal was achieved.
