Abstract
Power penalty in N-channel WDM system due to stimulated Raman crosstalk is investigated in a typical configuration consisting of two periodically amplified single mode fibers (SMF) by Erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) and dispersion compensated by dispersion compensating fiber (DCF). Results show that minimum power penalty is in central wavelength region of WDM system and inclusion of EDFA and DCF increases power penalty. Power penalty in individual channels due to remaining N-1 channels has also been investigated. The dependence of power penalty due to stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) on average input power, interchannel separation and bit rate of the system has also been assessed.
