A detailed overview of the technology and applications of DRAs can be found in IEC TR 61292-6. The object of this standard is to establish uniform requirements for accurate and reliable measurements, using an optical spectrum analyser ...view more

This part of IEC 61290-3 applies to all commercially available single channel optical amplifiers (OAs), including OAs using optically pumped fibres (OFAs) based on either rare-earth doped fibres or on the Raman effect, semiconductor optical amplifier modules (SOA modules) and planar optical waveguide amplifiers (POWAs). More specifically, it applies to single channel OAs placed before optical receivers, where there are no optical bandpass filtering elements placed between the OA and the receiver...view more
