Abstract
Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) optical networks are seen as a leading candidate for data avionic systems communication link needs. Optical burst mode switching uses wavelength addressing, replacing electronic switching. In this project we propose to develop a hybrid burst mode transmitter, able to support at minimum 32 wavelengths and switching between wavelength in 1 nanosecond or less, as an important step toward an ultimate goal of developing an integrated burst mode transceiver.
