Abstract

In this paper, theory and experimental results for wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) channel generation, formed by multi-line optical injection locking,is presented. A small-signal model to deal with wide-spectral-band optical injection problems has been developed. Based on this model, the crosstalk noise of an injection-locked laser in a coherent WDM system is assessed analytically. Experimental results on locking range, stability, and crosstalk noise confirms the modeling results, which indicate that stable and low-noise channels can be generated by this approach.
