Title

Mode-Equalized Distributed Raman Amplification in 137-Km Few-Mode Fiber

Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate 8 dB of mode-equalized distributed Raman gain using a backward pumping scheme. The equivalent noise figure of the amplifier is -1.5 dB, and the amplifier was successfully employed to demonstrate 6-channel mode-multiplexed MIMO transmission over 137-km few-mode fiber.
