Spectrum-sliced fiber amplifier light source has been proposed for wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) systems [1,2]. Contrary to coherent laser diodes, its optical channel bandwidth should be sufficiently larger than the transmission bit rate. Thus, its application was focused mainly on local-loop networks limited by the optical fiber dispersion. However, with recently developed dispersion compensation techniques [3], the application area of this incoherent light source can be extended to high bit-rate long-distance communications.
