Abstract

An optical signal suppression technique based on a cascaded SOA and RSOA is proposed for the reflective passive optical networks (PONs) with wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). By suppressing the downstream signal of the optical carrier, the proposed reflective PON effectively reuses the downstream optical carrier for upstream signal transmission. As an experimental demonstration, we show that the proposed optical signal suppression technique is effective in terms of the signal bandwidth and bit-error-rate (BER) performance of the remodulated upstream transmission.
