A theoretical investigation of bidirectionally dual-order pumped distributed Raman amplifiers is presented in detail, and comparisons with other Raman amplification schemes, i.e., bidirectional first-order pumping and Raman-plus-erbium-doped fiber hybrid amplification, are carried out at identical nonlinear phase shifts. The results show that symmetric bidirectional dual-order pumping can achieve the best optical signal-to-noise ratio performance by appropriate choice of the second-order pump wavelength and second-to-first-order pump power ratio for both short- and long-span conditions.
