 ECE 415 EXPERIMENT NO. 9 10Gb/s Optical Communication PURPOSE : To   demonstrate   and   measure   the   performance   of   modern   10Gb/s   optical  communication in various lengths of fiber, and also to observe dispersive effects along  with dispersion compensation methods. REFERENCES : 1.  C. L. Chen,  , Irwin, (1996), Section 8.4. 2.  Agrawal, G.P.,  Fiber-Optic Communication Systems , Wiley, (1997), Sections 3.3.7,  4.3.3, 4.5, 4.7, 5.4.4. 3.  Agrawal, G.P.,  Semiconductor Lasers , AIP, (1995), Sections 9.2.1. 4.  Proakis, J.G.,  Digital Communications , McGraw-Hill, (2001), pp 555-556. PROCEDURES : IMPORTANT:  Before making any type of fiber connections, you must clean the  fiber ends with cotton tipped swabs using ethyl alcohol then dry with compressed air.  WARNING : When making any type of adjustment to electrical connections, you  MUST  be grounded by wearing a grounding strap. The equipment is very sensitive and  all anti-static precautions must be taken. 1.     Arrange   your  setup   as  shown   in   Figure   1.     Connect   a  variable   optical  attenuator (VOA) to the optical output of the bit error rate tester (BERT) Optical  Transmit/Receive (Tx/Rx) module. Then connect the ouput of the VOA to a 90/10  power splitter. This will allow you to monitor the power at the receiver. The 10% are  should be connected to a power meter for observation, and the 90% are should be  connected to the optical input.     3/6/2011 11- 1
