Abstract
We present a simple genetic algorithm implemented to perform multiparameter optimization of a Raman fiber amplifier for a 100-channel L-band dense wavelength division multiplexed system at a 25-GHz interval. The system is investigated for various cases with fixed pump frequency leading to 202.2-THz pump as the best choice with average gain above 19.5 dB. There is evidence to show that a single counterpropagating pump optimized to 588.2-mW power level and optimum Raman fiber length of 38.8 km presents a small gain variation (<2  dB ) over an effective bandwidth covering 187 to 189.475 THz. The optimized configuration enabled an adequate system performance in terms of acceptable Q-factor (17 dB) and bit error rate (5.60×10 −13 ).
