    This paper demonstrates significant BER improvement in burst traffic transmission using optical-gain clamped amplifiers. Critical chaotic cases are identified for peculiar burst sequences and their impact in transmission ...
  • Effective amplification of real WDM burst traffic using optical gain clamping 

    Zannin, Marcelo; Taccheo, Stefano; Ennser, Karin; Careglio, Davide; Solé Pareta, Josep (2008-05-04)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Experimental studies of real optical burst traffic in WDM systems are performed with optical gain clamping for stabilizing the EDFA amplification. Impairments of power variation due to burst are shown to be negligible.
