Paper Abstract

This paper analyzes an optical wavelength division multiplexing system (WDM) with subcarrier multiplexing (SCM). The pump laser is tuned to amplify the corresponding optical carrier by fiber Brillouin amplification (FBA) in WDM for the desired group of SCM signals and then a microwave tuner is used to select the desired channel in this group. This system has the benefits of eliminating the need of polarization control, the ability of phase noise cancelling due to the 'squaring' photodetection process of the selected optical carrier together with its SCM channels, and enhancement of optical receiver sensitivities by amplification of the carrier.
