Abstract

An ultra-broadband photonic transport system has been developed to expand the usable wavelength bandwidth for optical communication. Simultaneous 3 × 10-Gbps error-free photonic transmissions are demonstrated in the 1-μm, C-, and L-wavebands by using the ultra-broadband photonic transport system over a 5.4-km-long holey fiber transmission line.
