Abstract This paper contains the investigation of reach improvement of dense wavelength-division-multiplexed passive optical network (DWDM-PON) using spectrum-sliced amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) source as a seed light. It is shown that flat-top AWG unit provides excellent channel separation and filtering at the same time passing sufficient high optical power from spectrally sliced ASE broadband light source. The maximum reach of the spectrum-sliced dense wavelength-division-multiplexed passive optical network (SS-DWDM PON) system with data transmission speed 2.5 Gbit/s can be fairly limited by chromatic dispersion (CD) because of large optical bandwidth per channel compared to the bit rate. And therefore, dispersion degrades the performance of a SS-DWDM PON system more than it is observed in conventional laser-based system. This paper contains the investigation of improved high speed 8-channel spectrum-sliced DWDM PON system with efficient CD compensation methods like dispersion compensating fiber (DCF) and fiber Bragg grating (FBG). In this research it is shown that CD compensation has an important role for guaranteed downstream optical link performance and maximum link length of high speed SS-DWDM PON system. Results show that FBG used for CD compensation in high speed spectrum-sliced dense WDM PON systems provides better accumulated CD compensation and increase link length up to 150% while DCF fiber provides up to 130% network reach improvement.
