Paper Abstract

As the FTTH (Fiber To The Home) is getting its way into families step by step, the FLAN (Fiber Local Access Network) will become a hot topic in the near future. In FLAN, the wavelength selector is a key component. We need passive, cheaper and easier-operational optical components to build up FLAN. The device based on FBGs could be one of the best choices for wavelength selecting in the FLAN, which is seldom reported before. According to the analysis on the Topology of FLAN, (STAR+BUS) will be a better structure. Here an experimental scheme for FLAN with passive FBGs, Circulators and Couplers is proposed.
