Abstract

Optical fiber becomes the fundamental means of transmission in the communication area. Spectrum slicing technique is very useful technique which mostly used nowadays in many communication systems due to its large capacity handling capability. The main advantage of spectrum slicing is that it is more power efficient and less costly than traditional laser technology. Mostly spectrum slicing can be done by using wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) and array waveguide grating (AWG). Semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) can be used to reduce the intensity of noise in spectrum sliced WDM system. For the past decades of time several works are going on different spectrum slicing technique and the effects of slicing in optical communication system. This paper reviews about various spectrum slicing techniques used in optical communication system.
