We demonstrate the use of a short length of highly nonlinear holey fibre to obtain strong L-band Raman amplification. Using a 75m long HF fibre with an effective area of 2.85µm2 we obtain internal gains of over 42dB and a noise figure of ~6dB. In addition, using the same fibre we obtain an 11dB extinction ratio in Raman induced all-optical modulation experiments.

Abstract

We demonstrate the use of a short length of highly nonlinear holey fibre to obtain strong L-band Raman amplification. Using a 75m long HF fibre with an effective area of 2.85µm2 we obtain internal gains of over 42dB and a noise figure of ~6dB. In addition, using the same fibre we obtain an 11dB extinction ratio in Raman induced all-optical modulation experiments.
