Paper Abstract

Colorless optical network unit (ONU) is a very important concept for the wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) based passive optical networks (PON). We present a novel scheme to construct non-wavelength-selective ONUs in WDM/OCDMA-PON by making use of the broad spectrum band of superstructure fiber Bragg gratings (SSFBGs). The experiment results reveal that the spectrum-sliced encoded signals from different wavelength channels can be successfully decoded with the same SSFBGs, and thus the proposed colorless ONU scheme is proved to be feasible.
