Abstract
We present a practical configuration of an amplified distributed reflective N-star coupler using 2 X 2 3-dB fiber couplers and least numbers of erbium-doped fibers, pump lasers, and standard fibers. The constitution and characteristics of this coupler are investigated. Besides a tremendous saving of the required standard fibers, this distributed coupler is more efficient, more reliable, more flexible for future expansion, and more cost-effective for application in optical networks.
