Abstract

Next generation optical access networks will require low cost lasers in conjunction with network flexibility and higher data rates. This work presents the direct modulation of a low cost tuneable slotted Fabry-Pérot laser (tuneable over 14nm) with AM-OFDM. Characteristics of this dual section laser are presented and transmission of 10Gb/s over 50km is achieved with this device.
