15-dB differential link-loss UDWDM-PON with direct beat phase modulated DFBs
Rights accessOpen Access
IEEE A 15 dB differential link-loss ultra-dense wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network (UDWDM-PON) with two optical network units (ONU) spectrally spaced 6.25 GHz is experimentally implemented and tested. The ONU transmitters consist of direct phase modulated distributed feedback lasers (DFB) through a digital beat signal, whose amplitude and duty cycle are optimized for maximum phase variations, avoiding the need for an analogue equalizer. We achieved receiver sensitivities of -53 dBm, -50.5 dBm, and -45 dBm for bit rates of 1.25 Gb/s, 2.5 Gb/s, and 5 Gb/s respectively at BER = 4·10 -3 with an intradyne coherent receiver.
