Abstract: Nowadays, the structure of the passive optical networks is evolving, to keep the network survivability, the powering of some elements in this kind of networks is a key issue. In this work we propose the recycling of the Raman pump remaining optical power at the receiver to be converted to electrical power. With a 24 dBm optical pump signal a 8 dB on/off gain over 25 km of single mode optical fiber was achieved. Also, the recycling of the pump signal generated 18.1 mW of electrical power at the receiver. (C) 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
