Rayleigh backscattering-suppression in a WDM access network employing a reflective semiconductor optical amplifier

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Rayleigh Backscattering feeding back an Optical Network Unit with a Reflective Semiconductor Optical Amplifier is an important distortion factor in a drop link of access network. Amplitude-to-phase coupling induced by RSOA bias dithering is used to mitigate this crosstalk and it brings power penalty improvement of around 3dB.
