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

IEC 61290-1:2014 applies to all commercially available optical amplifiers (OAs) and optically amplified subsystems. It applies to OAs using optically pumped fibres (OFAs based on either rare-earth doped fibres or on the Raman effect), semiconductors (SOAs), and waveguides (POWAs). The object of this standard is to establish uniform requirements for accurate and reliable measurements of the following OA parameters, as defined in Clause 3 of IEC 61291-1:2012: - nominal output signal power; - gain; - reverse gain; - maximum gain; - maximum gain wavelength; - maximum gain variation with temperature; - gain wavelength band; - gain wavelength variation; - gain stability; - polarization-dependent gain; - large-signal output stability; - saturation output power; - 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. Keywords: optical amplifiers (OAs), optically pumped fibres (OFAs), semiconductors (SOAs), and waveguides (POWAs)

Amplificateurs optiques - Méthodes d'essai - Partie 1: Paramètres de puissance et de gain

L'IEC 61290-1:2014 s'applique à tous les amplificateurs optiques (AO) et sous-systèmes à amplification optique disponibles sur le marché. Elle s'applique aux AO utilisant des fibres pompées optiquement (AFO basés sur des fibres dopées aux terres rares ou sur l'effet Raman), à semiconducteurs (AOS), et à guides d'ondes (POWA). L'objet de la présente norme est d'établir des exigences uniformes pour des mesures précises et fiables des paramètres d'AO donnés ci-dessous, tels qu'ils sont définis dans l'Article 3 de l'IEC 61291-1:2012: - puissance nominale du signal de sortie; - gain; - gain inverse; - gain maximal; - longueur d'onde du gain maximal; - variation maximale du gain en fonction de la température; - bande de longueur d'onde du gain; - variation du gain en fonction de la longueur d'onde; - stabilité du gain; - gain dépendant de la polarisation; - stabilité de sortie grands signaux; - puissance de sortie en saturation; - puissance maximale du signal de sortie; - puissance totale de sortie maximale. 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. Mots clés: amplificateurs optiques (AO), fibres pompées optiquement (AFO), semiconducteurs (AOS), guides d'ondes (POWA)

a) nazivne izhodne signalne moči;
b) ojačenja;
c) obratnega ojačenja;
d) največjega ojačenja;
e) valovne dolžine največjega ojačenja;
f) spreminjanja največjega ojačenja s temperaturo;
g) pasu valovne dolžine ojačenja;
h) spreminjanja valovne dolžine ojačenja;
i) stabilnosti ojačenja;
j) ojačenja, odvisnega od polarizacije;
k) stabilnosti izhoda velikih signalov;
l) izhodne moči nasičenosti;
m) največje izhodne signalne moči;
n) največje skupne izhodne moči.
OPOMBA 2: Vse številčne vrednosti, za katerimi je znak (‡), so predlagane vrednosti, za katere se zagotovi merjenje. Druge vrednosti se sprejmejo, če so preverjene.
Cilj tega standarda je obravnavati zlasti enokanalne ojačevalnike. Večkanalni ojačevalniki so obravnavani v skupini standardov IEC 61290-10.

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 has been prepared by subcommittee 86C: Fibre optic

systems and active devices, of IEC technical committee 86: Fibre optics.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:

Part 1: Power and gain parameters
1 Scope and object

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

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

rare-earth doped fibres or on the Raman effect), semiconductors (SOAs), and waveguides

(POWAs).

NOTE 1 The applicability of the test methods described in the present standard to distributed Raman amplifiers is

still under study.

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

measurements of the following OA parameters, as defined in Clause 3 of IEC 61291-1:2012:

a) nominal output signal power;
b) gain;
c) reverse gain;
d) maximum gain;
e) maximum gain wavelength;
f) maximum gain variation with temperature;
g) gain wavelength band;
h) gain wavelength variation;
i) gain stability;
j) polarization-dependent gain;
k) large-signal output stability;
l) saturation output power;
m) maximum output signal power;
n) maximum total output power.

NOTE 2 All numerical values followed by (‡).are suggested values for which the measurement is assured. Other

values are acceptable if verified.

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

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