Optical Fibre Amplifiers

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSE, volume 226)


The two main attractions of optical amplifiers in fibre telecommunications lie in the possibility of eliminating the complex electronic regenerators currently in use in submerged systems and the provision of a large optical fan-out in networked systems. These two applications are shown illustratively in fig(1).
