Abstract

One of the options for the RETINA network, part of the LOFAR antenna system, is to use the 1310 nm wavelength domain for transmission of data from antenna stations to the central processor. We demonstrate successful 80-Gbit/s (4×20-Gbit/s) WDM transmission in the 1310 nm wavelength domain over a distance suitable for the LOFAR antenna system. Additionally, we verified the feasibility of a 160-Gbit/s (8×20-Gbit/s) transmission over the same distance. In all cases the Q factors exceed 17.2 dB, corresponding to BER values under 10-12.
