Optimising signal quality in a spectrum-sliced WDM system using SOA-based noise reduction
We investigate experimentally and numerically the performance impact of optical filtering in a spectrumsliced incoherent light system incorporating a saturated SOA. Received signal quality can be improved significantly by reducing the SOA linewidth enhancement factor.

Abstract

We investigate experimentally and numerically the performance impact of optical filtering in a spectrumsliced incoherent light system incorporating a saturated SOA. Received signal quality can be improved significantly by reducing the SOA linewidth enhancement factor.
