We propose a scalable support WDM-based orthogonal frequency division multiple access-passive optical network uplink transmission system using an injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser diode (IL-FP-LD). This system uses an injection-locking technique to enhance the usable bandwidth by making stable channel states. By properly controlling the IL-FP-LD operation, the number of optical network units (ONU) within a wavelength can be increased, which improves the optical bandwidth efficiency for the uplink transmission. The experimental results show an enhanced modulation bandwidth of 3.5 GHz. Compared with a conventional RSOA which has a modulation bandwidth of 1.5 GHz, our scheme improves the number of ONUs that can be accommodated within a wavelength more than two times. The total discrete multitone signal received from the ONUs, with QPSK mapping on the subcarriers was 6.77 Gbps over a 23-km standard single mode fiber transmission.
