PD IEC TR 61292-3:2020

Optical amplifiers. Classification, characteristics and applications

Status : Current   Published : April 2020



IEC TR 61292-3:2020 which is a Technical Report, establishes the classification of optical amplifiers (OAs). It also includes a brief description of each amplifier, its general properties, performance, configurations and applications. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2003. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

  1. document architecture now focuses on EDFA, FRA and SOA;
  2. the description of PDFA and TDFA has been moved to the annexes;
  3. the EDWA description has been deleted;
  4. information on single channel amplification, multi-channel amplification, configuration and control method for EDFA, FRA and SOA has been added;
  5. information on future amplifiers, arrayed amplifiers and SDM amplifiers has been added.
