Abstract

We report on the generation of combined FSK/IM modulation format by using GCSR tunable laser sources. FSK modulation, up to 100 Mbit/s, has been achieved by modulating the phase section of a GCSR laser source. We experimentally demonstrate generation of combined FSK/IM modulation at 100Mbit/s and 10 Gbit/s, respectively. We also report on successful FSK label insertion using a SOA-MZI wavelength converter.
