Paper Abstract

The Michelson interferometer-based interleaver is widely used in wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) systems. A performance comparison for a 10-gigabit/s WDM system with a Michelson interferometer-based interleaver of different designs is presented. The trade-off between the designs that improve the passband bandwidth and reduce chromatic dispersion is discussed. It is concluded that a comprehensive design, including analysis at both the component and system levels, is necessary.
