Gain-Clamp Light Auto Level Control (GCL-ALC) Technique for Gain-Controllable Burst-Mode PON Amplifying Repeater

Abstract

A novel gain-clamping technique that controls the amplifier output power of the gain-clamp light by the ALC mechanism is proposed and experimentally confirmed. It yields signal-light gain controllability and stability in burst-mode PON signal amplification.
