Description <para> This letter proposes a centralized frequency stabilization technique for uplink signals in dense wavelength- division-<?Pub /_nolinebreak ?> multiplexed passive optical networks; it is based on dithering the transmission spectra of the demultiplexer. To ensure that the proposed technique achieves a wide capture range, a planar lightwave circuit is developed that incorporates a Mach–Zehnder interferometer and two arrayed waveguide gratings. Experimental results show that the wide capture range of <emphasis emphasistype="italic"><formula formulatype="inline"> <tex Notation="TeX">$\pm$</tex></formula></emphasis>25 GHz is established without any significant power penalty. </para>
