Upstream signal transmission using a self-injection locked Fabry-Perot laser diode for WDM-PON

Paper Abstract

We present an upstream transmission method independent of temperature characteristics of the remote node (RN) in a WDM-PON. This method employs a self-injection locked Fabry-Perot laser diode (F-P LD) for upstream transmission in the optical network unit (ONU). Using this method, the sidemodes of the F-P LD are suppressed, and the F-P LD is matched to the center wavelength of the wavelength distributor/combiner placed at the RN. The experimental results confirm that bidirectional error-free transmission at 1.25/10 Gbit/s could be achieved.
