Paper Abstract

This paper presents a fast switching and gain control technique of optical repeated units for burst mode upstream transmission over a Super-PON system by using semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs). Measurement results confirm that switching of the SOA can be accomplished within 3 bits at 155.52 Mbps and that the gain control range is more than 10 dB.
