Abstract

Exact integral solutions of forward and backward Raman Stokes–pump interaction are presented. They enable one to determine the gain and depletion characteristics of optical Raman amplifiers, as well as a good approximation of the noise figure, without the need of numerically solving the nonlinear boundary value differential equations governing the Raman interaction.
