We proposed an arrayed waveguide granting (AWG) based 10 Gbps full duplex wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network (WDM-PON) utilizing a return-to-zero differential phase shift keying (RZ-DPSK) modulation technique for down-link direction and then re-modulation of the downlink (DL) signal for the uplink (UL) direction using intensity modulation technique (OOK) with a data rate of 10 Gbps per channel. A successful cost effective colorless WDM-PON full duplex transmission operation for a data rate of 10 Gbps per channel, with a channel spacing of 60 GHz over a distance of 25 km without any optical amplification and dispersion compensation is achieved within low power penalty.
