The CW-WDM MSA (Continuous-Wave Wavelength Division Multiplexing Multi-Source Agreement) Group released its first official specification for 8, 16, and 32 wavelength optical sources. The group formed last June to define and promote specifications for multiwavelength advanced integrated optics, focused specifically on the laser source rather than the entire communications link, and not targeted at specific applications.
The Multi-Source Agreement (MSA) defines laser sources covering three spans in the O-band wavelength grids. These lasers can be used as sources for numerous applications such as high-density co-packaged optics, machine learning, and optical computing. Wavelength grids are defined with enough technical detail to ensure…READ MORE
