Accurate Raman Gain peak value
I am trying to realise an accurate simulation of the performance of a Raman Amplifier working with a low-power pump, so the gain obteined is low too. For this reason, I need a precise value of the parameters “raman gain peak” and “raman gain reference” used in the “Raman Amplifier – Average Model” block.
I don’t have a clue of what value use.
I know that the fiber that I am simulating (SMF-28) have an Raman Gain Efficiency = 0.42 [Km^-1 W^-1], and I have the values of the attenuation and effective area. But I not sure if there is a way of convert this parameter into the values that de Raman Block require.
Furthermore, I have seen and some articles that they use, for the same king of fiber, a value of “Raman Gain peak” of 9.9e-14 m/W. But they don’t indicate what is the value for the “Raman gain reference”.
I will appreciate any help.
