This lesson demonstrates the light amplification caused by the stimulated Raman scattering effect. The layout and its global parameters are shown in Figure 1.
Figure 1: Layout and global parameters
Figure 2 shows the setup for the optical fiber component.
Figure 2: Setup parameters
The spectrum of the input signal consists of a strong pump monochromatic wave (100 W) at 1550 nm and a weak (-99 dBm) Stokes wave at 1640 nm (10 THz Stokes shift) (see Figure 3).

Figure 4 gives the output spectrum. The weaker (low frequency) spectral component is amplified and the gain is G=99-61.7=37.3 dB.

Raman gain coefficient is given  by:
The Raman gain (in dB) is then G = 10log(exp(gPL)) = 37.2dB, where P is
the pump power and L is the fiber length.
