We report a novel hybrid optical amplifier covering S+C+L bands with 105-nm total bandwidth using a silica fiber. The principle of amplification is based on the stimulated radiative transition of Er-ions for C-band and on the stimulated Raman scattering for S- and L-band, respectively. In this letter, we analyze the amplification characteristics for two types of active fiber mediums through numerical simulation. One is a silica fiber configured with Er-doped cladding and Ge-doped core and the other is a medium consisting of Er-doped fiber and dispersion-compensating fiber. By optimizing parameters such as fiber length and pump power, we newly achieve wide-band amplification with 105-nm bandwidth showing a flat gain characteristic over the entire S+C+L bands.
