Abstract
High power 1300nm edge emitting LED's (ELED) will be required for spectrally sliced optical transmission systems. However, wavelength shifts caused by variations in ambient conditions and drive current will cause a degradation in system performance. We show that using current technology wavelength division multiplexers the use of uncooled transmitters causes a reduction in operating margin of 50% in a four channel system and that significant performance limitations occur when operating with multi-level line codes.
