Abstract

A hybrid wavelength-division multiplexed/subcarrier multiplexed passive optical network (WDM/SCM-PON) which shares the same wavelength both up-link and down-link is presented by using a reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) as a modulator. We investigated down-link of 622 Mb/s using distributed feedback laser diode with direct modulation and 100-Mb/s up-link using an RSOA as a modulator with 900-MHz SCM signal. In our scheme, a novel efficient and cost-effective WDM/SCM-PON using the same wavelength for down/up-link at each optical network unit is proposed and experimentally demonstrated.
