Paper Abstract

An experiment was performed using two-channel wavelength division multiplexing and demultiplexing devices to determine the feasibility of using 1260 nm and 1330 nm lasers. The experiment showed that it was feasible to use wavelengths with separation of 70 nm; however, these devices would not be standard commercial devices. The devices were manufactured using dichroic coatings designed for two specific wavelengths. Pigtails were mounted on the devices so that connectors could be used to couple into a 10 km span of fiber. The results of the experiment show the insertion loss of the devices, crosstalk from Channel 1 to Channel 2, and a comparison of bit error rate performance.
