Paper Abstract

We proposed N-channel power compensated and reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) based on the utilization of fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs). Both tunable and fixed fiber Bragg gratings are used in this ROADM. By using the dual-pass amplification scheme, an 8.0 dB optical net gain is achieved with gain variation under ±0.5 dB for each add/drop/pass-through channel. System demonstration bit error rate performance with only 1.2 dB of power penalty in a 10 Gb/sx 4 Ch, 100-km lightwave transmission.
