We have proposed and experimentally demonstrated a novel WDM-PON downstream optical link. It is composed of a wavelength-locked FP-LD with a spectrally-sliced FP-LD as an external-injection optical source and operated as directly-modulating in a downstream-traffic transmitter. The downstream transmissions at 622 Mbps and 2.5 Gbps were performed for four channels over 25 km. The proposed WDM-PON downstream transmitter can be expanded up to eight channels by controlling an external-injection optical source of a spectrally-sliced FP-LD. Also, the transmitter has facility of multi-channel selection by controlling temperature. We verified the potential of the transmitter in WDM-PON optical link.
