Optical amplifiers - Test methods - Part 1-1: Power and gain parameters - Optical spectrum analyzer method

IEC 61290-1-1:2015(E) applies to all commercially available optical amplifiers (OAs) and optically amplified modules. It applies to OAs using optically pumped fibres (OFAs based on either rare-earth doped fibres or on the Raman effect), semiconductor OAs (SOAs) and planar optical waveguide amplifiers (POWAs). The object of this standard is to establish uniform requirements for accurate and reliable measurements, by means of the optical spectrum analyzer test method, of the following OA parameters, as defined in IEC 61291-1: - nominal output signal power; - gain; - polarization-dependent gain; - maximum output signal power; - maximum total output power. The object of this standard is specifically directed to single-channel amplifiers. For multichannel amplifiers, one should refer to the IEC 61290-10 series. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2006 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: updates on the characteristics of measurement apparatus and revised list of addressed optical amplifier parameters. Keywords: optical amplifiers, optical spectrum analyzer test, single-channel amplifiers

Amplificateurs optiques - Méthodes d'essai - Partie 1-1: Paramètres de puissance et de gain - Méthode de l'analyseur de spectre optique

L'IEC 61290-1-1:2015 s'applique à tous les amplificateurs optiques et modules à amplification optique disponibles sur le marché. Elle s'applique aux amplificateurs optiques utilisant des fibres pompées optiquement (OFA basés sur des fibres dopées aux terres rares ou sur l'effet Raman), des amplificateurs optiques à semiconducteurs (SOA) et des amplificateurs à guide d'onde optique planaire (POWA). L'objet de la présente norme est d'établir des exigences uniformes pour des mesurages précis et fiables, par le biais de la méthode d'essai de l'analyseur de spectre optique, des paramètres d'amplificateurs optiques donnés ci-dessous, tels qu'ils sont définis dans l'IEC 61291-1: - puissance nominale du signal de sortie; - gain; - gain dépendant de la polarisation; - puissance maximale du signal en sortie; - puissance totale maximale en sortie. L'objet de la présente norme est spécifiquement centré sur les amplificateurs à un seul canal. Pour les amplificateurs à canaux multiples, il convient de se reporter à la série IEC 61290-10. Cette troisième édition annule et remplace la deuxième édition parue en 2006 et constitue une révision technique. La présente édition contient les principales modifications techniques suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: mises à jour des caractéristiques de l'appareillage de mesure; révision de la liste des paramètres relatifs aux amplificateurs optiques traités. Mots clés: amplificateurs optiques, essai de l'analyseur de spectre optique, amplificateurs à un seul canal

Optični ojačevalniki - Preskusne metode - 1-1. del: Močnostni in ojačevalni parametri - Metoda z analizatorjem optičnega spektra (IEC 61290-1-1:2015)

Ta del standarda IEC 61290 se uporablja za vse komercialno dostopne optične ojačevalnike (OA) in optično ojačane module. Uporablja se za optične ojačevalnike z optično črpanimi vlakni (OFA, ki temeljijo na dopiranih vlaknih redke zemljine ali Ramanovem efektu), polprevodniške optične ojačevalnike (SOA) in ravninske optične valovodne ojačevalnike (POWA).
Cilj tega standarda je določiti enotne zahteve za točne in zanesljive meritve z uporabo preskusne metode z analizatorjem optičnega spektra, in sicer naslednjih parametrov optičnih ojačevalnikov, kot je določeno v standardu IEC 61291-1:
a) nazivne izhodne signalne moči;
b) ojačenja;
c) ojačenja, odvisnega od polarizacije;
d) največje izhodne signalne moči;
e) največje skupne izhodne moči.
OPOMBA: Vse številčne vrednosti, za katerimi je znak (‡), so predlagane vrednosti, za katere se zagotovi merjenje. Cilj tega standarda je obravnavati zlasti enokanalne ojačevalnike. Večkanalni ojačevalniki so obravnavani v skupini standardov IEC 61290-10 [1]2.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61290-1-1 has been prepared by subcommittee 86C: Fibre optic

systems and active devices, of IEC technical committee 86: Fibre optics.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2006 and constitutes a

technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) updates on the characteristics of measurement apparatus;
b) revised list of addressed optical amplifier parameters.

1 Scope

This part of IEC 61290 applies to all commercially available optical amplifiers (OAs) and

optically amplified modules. It applies to OAs using optically pumped fibres (OFAs based on

either rare-earth doped fibres or on the Raman effect), semiconductor OAs (SOAs) and planar

optical waveguide amplifiers (POWAs).

The object of this standard is to establish uniform requirements for accurate and reliable

measurements, by means of the optical spectrum analyzer test method, of the following OA

parameters, as defined in IEC 61291-1:
a) nominal output signal power;
b) gain;
c) polarization-dependent gain;
d) maximum output signal power;
e) maximum total output power.

NOTE All numerical values followed by (‡) are suggested values for which the measurement is assured.

The object of this standard is specifically directed to single-channel amplifiers. For

multichannel amplifiers, one should refer to the IEC 61290-10 series [1] .
