Abstract:
An externally modulated NTSC 77-channel erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA)-repeated system employing Fabry-Perot (FP) etalon at the receiving site to improve system performance was proposed and demonstrated. In comparison with conventional externally modulated fiber optical CATV transport systems, good performance of carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR), composite second order (CSO), and composite triple beat (CTB) were achieved for the full channel band over a 100-km single-mode fiber (SMF) transmission. Our proposed systems are suitable for the long-haul fiber optical CATV transport systems.
