Abstract

The letter presents the results obtained with a densely spaced FDM coherent optical network using monolithic widely frequency-tunable lasers. The system consists of four channels transmitted around 1.53 μm, FSK-modulated at 200 Mbit/s and spaced by 2.45 GHz. A 16 × 16 fibre star coupler combines the four optical signals. Demultiplexing is performed by a heterodyne FM receiver at an if frequency of 850 MHz. The minimum received optical power needed to obtain a BER of 10-9 is -55.5 dbm or 109 photons/bit, which is 3.4 db from the shot noise limit.
