Abstract

A simple and highly-sensitive (-67 dBm) fault monitoring and localization scheme is achieved without modifications to the ONU, by utilizing a low bandwidth (∼2 kHz) and low power (∼ -7 dBm) fault monitor and the high reflectivity mirror of VCSEL transmitters. © 2007 Optical Society of America.
