C+L Band Raman Amplifier

Amonics Raman Amplifier is a high power pump laser source for distributed optical amplification of optical signals in the C or C+L band.

The Raman Amplifier features 2 or 4 pumping wavelengths for gain flattened amplification. It is a ready-to-use optical amplifier equipped with a broadband pump & signal combiner and individual power monitoring for each channel. The Raman Amplifier is available in both benchtop and rackmount casings, as well as customized modules.
