Original Abstract

Semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA) have become more popular in optical networks. We tested if SOA can be used in bidirectional passive optical networks based on wavelength division multiplexing (WDM-PON). First part, the measurement was focused on possibilities of using SOA designed for 1550 nm in the laboratory PON working at wavelengths of 1490/1550 nm either way. Second part, the simulation was performed to prove the possibility of amplifying several wavelengths with narrower spectral width together. The measurement and the simulation have shown that SOA is able to work in the next-generation WDM based PON.
