Virtually isotropic transmission media with fiber Raman amplifier
Sergeyev, Sergey; Popov, Sergei; Friberg, Ari T.;
We report a theoretical study and simulations of a novel fiber-spin tailoring technique to suppress the polarization impairments, namely polarization mode dispersion and polarization dependent gain (PDG), in fiber Raman amplifiers. Whereas use of depolarizer or multiple... View more
