Abstract

A method of reducing the effects of coherent cross talk in a wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) add/drop multiplexer is proposed and analyzed by purposely introducing a delay between different cross-talk paths. For a 16-channel WDM system, this method reduces the requirement for the multiplexer/demultiplexer cross talk by approx. 10 dB for return to zero and approx. 5 dB for nonreturn to zero transmission.
