Paper Abstract

WDM semiconductor sources are needed to fulfill the requirements of future high-speed, all- optical fiber networks. The key technical challenge is to meet at the same time all of the tight requirements on wavelength accuracy, stability over time, high-speed operation, simplicity of control electronics, and low cost that practical systems demands. State-of-the-art of WDM component technology is explored and the many available technological options are presented and compared.
