Multiwavelength high-repetition-rate return-to-zero (RZ) optical pulse sources are becoming increasingly important for use in wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) networks. Recently, it is demonstrated that a novel self-starting electroabsorption modulator (EAM)-based optoelectronic oscillator (EAM-OEO) that converts a single CW inpout into a 10 GHz-rate optical pulse stream with the lowest timing jitter reported to date for self-starting sources. This paper reports on the use of an advanced version of the EAM-OEO to convert multiple independent CW input lasers into synchronized 10 GHz-rate optical pulse streams for use in the C, L, and U-bands of the fiber-optic communication spectrum.
