Paper Abstract

This paper describes the development and testing of a 4 channel, 10 Gbps/channel WDM module. This model incorporates four DFB lasers whose wavelengths are spaced 1.6 nm apart within the 1550 nm fiber window. A driver circuit have been developed based on a commercially-available monolithic amplifier which provides high-speed operation at low cost. The performance of the module was measured at 10 Gbps and 2.5 Gbps. Time-domain performance and crosstalk results are presented.
