Optical amplification apparatus

Image Number 17 for United States Patent #6256141.

An optical amplification apparatus for adjusting optical power of wavelength-multiplexed signal light at respective wavelengths and for adjusting the optical output power at the respective wavelengths and a deviation of the optical output power between the wavelengths. An optical power adjusting unit for receiving inputted light having signal light at a plurality of different wavelengths (.lambda..sub.1, .lambda..sub.2, .lambda..sub.3, . . . , .lambda..sub.N) multiplexed thereon, amplifying or attenuating light at least one wavelength included in the received light independently of light at different wavelengths from the wavelength of the light, is provided before or after an optical amplifier unit for amplifying the light having the signal light at the plurality of different wavelengths multiplexed thereon. Further, a control unit is provided for controlling the gain of amplification or attenuation performed by the optical power adjusting unit and the gain of amplification performed by the optical amplifier unit, respectively.
