We experimentally study the impact of filter bandwidth of a spectrum-sliced amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) source on the injection-locking of a Fabry-Pérot laser diode (FPLD) for passive optical network application. Optimal bandwidth of a spectrum-sliced ASE source was found in terms of receiver sensitivity after transmission. We also investigate the impact of intensity noise (IN) of the spectrum-sliced ASE source and its suppression for a wavelength-locked FPLD using a semiconductor optical amplifier. Experiment results show that the output performance of a wavelength-locked FPLD is improved by IN suppression.
