Optical amplifiers - Test methods - Part 1: Power and gain parameters
Note: a redline version of this publication exists
IEC 61290-1:2022 RLV
a) nominal output signal power;
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) gain ripple (SOA only);
l) large-signal output stability;
m) saturation output power;
n) maximum output signal power;
o) maximum total output power.
NOTE 1 The applicability of the test methods described in this document to distributed Raman amplifiers is still under study. NOTE 2 All numerical values followed by (‡) are suggested values for which the measurement is assured. Other values are acceptable if verified. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2014. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- specification of gain ripple as a new parameter;
- specification of test method and test report for gain ripple measurements;
- use of the term “measurement uncertainty” instead of “measurement accuracy”.
