Abstract
We report that simple wavelength switching technique based on actively mode-locked Fabry-Perot laser diode (FPLD) coupled with high dispersion external cavity by slightly detuning the modulation frequency. When dispersion compensating fiber (DCF) with dispersion, -100ps/km/nm at 1550 nm, is used for timing filter, peak wavelength of the optical pulse switched from the shorter FP longitudinal mode to the longer FP longitudinal mode. Wavelength switching from the longer FP longitudinal mode to the shorter FP longitudinal mode was achieved by adopting a length of single mode fiber with dispersion, 16ps/km/nm at 1550 nm.
