We demonstrated improved performance of a low-noise broadband light source (BLS) based on mutually injected Fabry-Perot laser diodes for a large capacity and high bit-rate wavelength-division-multiplexed passive optical network (WDM-PON). The 3-dB linewidth and relative intensity noise of each mode of the low-noise BLS are improved by radio-frequency modulation, where the frequency was detuned from the fundamental noise peak of the low-noise BLS. Then, a 622-Mb/s WDM-PON was demonstrated. Furthermore, a 1-Gb/s WDM-PON can be realized with Manchester coding at a channel spacing of 100 GHz. Thus, the proposed low-noise BLS can be employed to realize a highly scalable WDM-PON.
