Paper Abstract

In this paper, a novel scheme for band selection in an amplified spontaneous emission source (ASE) based on erbium-doped fiber is demonstrated. C-band operation is obtained without backward ASE feedback whereas L-band operation is obtained with backward ASE feedback with the used of a 1X2 optical switch. A selective ASE source with an output power of 27.6mW for the C-band and 11.8mW for the L-band is obtained experimentally with a total pump power of 100mW of 1480nm laser diode. This band selective ASE source convenience the users select the necessary band when needed without any form of upgrading or additional module attachment therefore has the potential use for the dual-band DWDM device characterization and metro networks.
