Paper Abstract

The power penalty of semiconductor laser diode in a loop mirror (SLALOM) as OTDM optical demultiplexer is numerically assessed in this paper. The calculation shows that the degradation of SLALOM performance is greatly related to amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) of SLA and pattern effect due to SLA's slow recovery time. The operating condition of SLA is discussed to improve the demultiplexer’s performance.
