Impact of Temperature on Spatial Hole Burning and Modulation Bandwidth of Reflective Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers

  • Maho A.

Self-Seeded RSOA transmitters are a possible implementation of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) passive optical networks (PON). Although good results were obtained [], their cost and power consumption are still an issue. To improve these performances, the RSOA should operated in an uncooled or a semi-uncooled regime and thus avoiding the use of a thermo electric cooler (TEC). Some solutions have been proposed. Performances up to 85°C were obtained but modulation speeds were below 2,5 Gbit/s and electronic equalization as well as current controller were used. In this paper, we present a RSOA in the C band operating at 10 Gbit/s and a RSOA in the O band operating at 5 Gbit/S up to 60°C. By measuring the spontaneous emission, we explain why C band is faster than the O band.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
