Muchlis Abdul Muthalib, Norhana Arsad, Abang Anuar Ehsan, Sahbudin Shaari


In this experiment we propose and demonstrate a CWDM transmission system using hybrid amplifiers SOA-EDFA. A new hybrid two-stage in the system of optical fiber amplifier for coarse wavelength division multiplexing (CWDM) network is studied. The hybrid amplifier is a cascaded semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and erbium- doped fiber amplifiers (EDFA) which provide a nearly flat gain over 80 nm. The hybrid amplifier has been modeled using a OptiSystem version 9 by Optiwave modeling tool on a CWDM transmission system which consisting of two spans of 100 km.
