An extremely large 3-dB gain-bandwidth of 75 nm (1531-1606 nm) is achieved with a partially gain-flattened erbium-doped fluoride fiber amplifier and a distributed Raman amplifier. The Raman amplifier consists of a 85-km dispersion-shifted fiber (transmission fiber) and a practical 1505-nm Fabry-Perot laser diode pump. 9/spl times/2.5 Gb/s wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) transmission is successfully demonstrated using two 75-nm gain-band amplifiers as in-line and preamplifiers.
