INVESTIGATION ON PCRR BASED ADF IN 10 GBPS CWDM NETWORKS

Abstract
In this paper, a four channel Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) network is designed by incorporating the proposed and designed Two Dimensional (2D) Photonic Crystal Ring Resonator (PCRR) based Add Drop Filter (ADF). The performance parameters of the network such as the received output power, Bit Error Rate (BER) and Q factor are examined for the bit rate of 10 Gbps over the fiber length of 50 km and 400 km. The observed sensitivity of the receiver is -19 dBm. Also, the receiver sensitivity of the dropped channel is increased while increasing the channel distance; however, it is decreased and maintained constant for added channel.
