We demonstrate 10 Gbit/s optical burst signal amplification to confirm the feasibility of burst-mode optical amplifiers for 10 Gbit/s PON application. We successfully achieve 15.0 dB loss budget improvement and a loss budget of over 42.8 dB for 10 Gbit/s optical burst signal amplification using the burst-mode optical amplifier.
