We investigate wavelength tunable 56-Gb/s differential quaternary phase-shift keying (DQPSK) systems using comb generation in a quantum-dash mode-locked laser for wavelength-division-multiple access (WDM)-based broadcast application. We present relative intensity noise and bit-error-rate measurements for each mode. We demonstrate error-free operation over nine WDM channels with 100-GHz spacing.
