Study of different SOA structures impact on the transmission of IMDD OOFDM signals

Abstract : The thesis work deals with study of different SOA structures impact on the transmission of intensity modulation and direct detection OFDM signals in the context of the next generation access networks. In the first part of the work, we have experimentally validated a comprehensive wideband RSOA field model. It was the nused as part of a co-simulation platform for IMDD-OOFDM and OOFDM wavelength conversion transmission systems. Thanks to this co-simulation platform that presents good agreement with the measurement, and our experimental setup, we analyze the transmission performance in terms of optical input power, fiber length, ASEnoise, electrical bandwidth and RSOA nonlinearities. We showed by simulation that an AMOOFDM signal transmission over a 100 nm wavelength range with a minimum transmission capacity of 8.9 Gb/s for fiber lengths up to 100 km can be reached. Finally, we experimentally demonstrated, for the first time to the best of our knowledge, the feasibility of performing wave length conversion over 70 nm of OOFDM-16QAM optical signals using the XGM effect in an RSOA. In the second part of this work we develop a simplified quantum dot –SOA and two electrode SOAintensity modulator models and study their effect on a numerical OFDM IMDD transmission system, we also study a two cascaded SOA in a counter propagating configuration as an intensity modulator. We find that for the three configurations we can achieve a high transmission capacity of around 30 Gb/s for transmission distances up to 60 Km, we also find that the QD-SOA will have the best performance in terms of transmission capacity for distances up to 140 Km in comparison with the two other SOA configurations.
