Abstract

A theoretical analysis of the Raman amplification in optical fibers and the pump-to-signal relative intensity noise (RIN) transfer has been performed in the spectral domain. An efficient Raman amplification of a monochromatic signal beam by a large-bandwidth pump beam has been demonstrated for a pump bandwidth much smaller than the Raman linewidth. Under the same approximation the pump-to-signal RIN transfer has been calculated in both cases of copropagating and counterpropagating beams in the two limiting cases of modulated monochromatic and smooth-profile large-bandwidth pump beams. At low frequencies the excess of noise evidenced in the case of a modulated monochromatic pump beam did not exist in the case of large-bandwidth pseudoincoherent sources. As this noise reduction can be as large as 13 dB for a 40 dB net gain of the amplifier, such incoherent pumping sources must be considered for the purpose of low-noise Raman amplifiers
