Abstract

Mode partition noise is shown to be a cause for concern in terms of the intensity noise induced on a self-seeded gain-switched pulse when filtering is used to increase the side mode suppression ratio (SMSR) of the output signal to >30 dB. The inherent SMSR of a self-seeded gain switched pulse is revealed to be a vital parameter especially when output filtration is used. Our results portray the fact that such a procedure would lead to an introduction of noise on the SSGS pulses if the inherent SMSR is weak, and may ultimately determine whether or not a source is suitable for use in WDM or OTDM optical communication networks.
