abstract
The goal of the project is to develop an innovative WDM network concept based on low-cost WDM submodules and to evaluate the achievable performance in a network demonstrator. The concept is based on optical sources with broad spectrum and uses the filtering/multiplexing functions that are intrinsic to WDM to cut-out the desired wavelength channel. In this way, all the sources are the same and need not be temperature controlled. They can therefore be produced in larger volume and only a singhe spare device is required.
