Abstract

Nowadays, the structure of the passive optical networks is evolving, to keep the network survivability, the powering of some elements in this kind of networks is a key issue. In this work we propose the recycling of the Raman pump remaining optical power at the receiver to be converted to electrical power. With a 24 dBm optical pump signal a 8 dB on/off gain over 25 km of single mode optical fiber was achieved. Also, the recycling of the pump signal generated 18.1 mW of electrical power at the receiver. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
