Abstract
The Linear Optical Amplifier (LOA) is a chip-based amplifier that was developed to meet the optical amplifier requirements for emerging optical networks. The requirements include operating at wide range of bit rates and protocols, varying number of channels, as well as reduced cost and size. In this work, LOA performance characteristics are measured and its linearity characterized under both static and dynamic switching environments. The LOA performance is also shown in three key applications: transmitter boost, receiver pre-amplification, and in an in-line, cascaded metropolitan ring.
