Abstract

We demonstrate the viability of high-performance WDM VCSEL transmission with semiconductor optical amplifiers as a low cost alternative to systems composed of DFB lasers with EDFA amplification. We study the use of Corning MetroCoro reg; fiber trade; as a means of combating the dispersion effects resulting from the chirp of directly modulated lasers.
