Development of a Hybrid Broadband Amplifier for FOTS Solutions

Summary of Doctoral Thesis

Mareks Parfjonovs, Riga Technical University, Latvia

The main objective of the Thesis is the creation of a novel hybrid amplifier that leverages the strengths of different amplification technologies while mitigating their individual limitations. The Thesis delves into the theoretical principles and practical considerations underlying the hybrid broadband amplifier, drawing from various optical amplifier technologies. It seeks to optimize signal quality and transmission efficiency in fiber optic networks, especially in scenarios where optical attenuation and bandwidth expansion are critical factors. Through a rigorous exploration of the design, performance evaluation, and real-world applications of the hybrid broadband amplifier, the Thesis contributes to advancing state-of-the-art in optical communication technologies.
