Paper Abstract

In this paper we present our recent works on optical injection of Fabry-Perot laser diode for application in access networks. The injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser diode is used as low-cost colorless transmitters for high-speed optical access exploiting wavelength-division-multiplexing technology. The modification of main characteristics of Fabry-Perot laser such as spectral properties, noise and modulation is shown in injection-locking regime. The strong dependence of these properties onto injection parameters is also given. Finally, the operation of injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser diode in a wavelength-division-multiplexed optical access system using a novel multi-wavelength master source based on quantum-dash mode-locked laser is presented and its transmission performances at 2.5 Gb/s are reported.
