Effects of optical repeater lines for reshaping on communication systems

Ajung Kim, W. Y. Shin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Analyses of ideal models for reamplifying and reshaping repeaters are presented to evaluate performance of such lumped repeater chains for long-haul transmission, compared with EDFA chains. A non-ideal case in real systems, which is based on interferometric configuration of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA), is addressed and measured and its noise characteristics are analyzed. System performance evaluations in a communication line are performed.
