Paper Abstract

We evaluate the effects of the downstream modulation formats (such as NRZ, inverse RZ, and Manchester) on the performance of the WDM PON implemented by using the reflective semiconductor optical amplifiers (RSOA's). The results show that, when we modulate the downstream signals in Manchester format, the performance of the upstream signal becomes insensitive to the operating condition of the RSOA.
