Abstract

A bi-directional reconfigurable scheme of multichannel-selective optical add-drop multiplexer (OADM) is proposed in this paper. With only small wavelength channel tuned range, the proposal applies fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) and multiport optical circulators (MOCs) to build a bi-direction reconfigurable OADM which can deal with full channels without the receiving signal having wavelength-interleaved. Moreover, it is easier and more flexible to extend wavelength channels by cascading additional FBGs. The magnitudes of homodyne and heterodyne crosstalks are analyzed for evaluating the performance of the proposed BOADM. Also, the power equalization of each signal in the add-drop and output ports is managed properly by implementing filters. As a result, the BOADM will be found in wide applications in dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) optical networks and in multiwavelength crossconnects (WXCs).
