Error-free transmission over 20km of 8-channels for both downstream and upstream in colourless WDM-PON based on injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser is experimentally demonstrated at 2.5Gbit/s, using a single quantum dash mode-locked laser as multi-wavelength seeding source. Introduction To meet the bandwidth demand of next generation optical access network… (More)
Error-free colorless WDM-PON downstream over 25 km for 16 channels with 85 GHz channel spacing is experimentally demonstrated at 2.5 Gbit/s, using an injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser and a quantum dash mode-locked laser as a coherent seeding source.
A novel WDM-PON delivering 10-Gb/s downstream based on L-band loss-less reflective-amplified-modulator and 2.5-Gb/s upstream based on C-band injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser is experimentally demonstrated for 24 channels over 25-km, using quantum-dash mode-locked laser-based multiple-wavelengths seeding sources. 1. Introduction To meet the bandwidth… (More)
This paper presents our work carried out in the colorless-component technologies for high bit-rate optical access networks, which are based on WDM-PON (wavelength division multiplexed passive optical networks). The colorless concept consists in using identical and wavelength-independent components that will act as the generic transmitter in WDM-PON systems.… (More)
Injection-locking is based on the fact that the laser can be locked onto the frequency and the phase of an external injected optical signal. When a Fabry-Perot laser diode (FP LD) is locked onto a single-mode signal, its operation becomes single-mode. The injection-locked FP LD (IL-FP LD) has been proposed as a standard component for optical access network… (More)
In this paper we present our recent works on optical injection of Fabry-Perot laser diode for application in access networks. The injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser diode is used as low-cost colorless transmitters for high-speed optical access exploiting wavelength-division-multiplexing technology. The modification of main characteristics of Fabry-Perot… (More)
This research carries out coherence measurements of a 42.7 GHz quantum dash (QDash) semiconductor laser when passively, electrically, and optically mode-locked. Coherence of the spectral lines from the mode-locked laser is determined by examining the radio frequency beat-tone linewidth as the mode spacing is increased up to 1.1 THz. Electric-field… (More)
