Paper Abstract

Measured and simulated power penalties were compared for 10Gbit/s NRZ loop experiments for cascaded AWG filters with 50GHz and 100GHz channel spacings. The results show that spectral flatness of cascaded filters can strongly influence the performance of high-speed systems with small channel spacing.
