We design an ultra-compact active hybrid plasmonic ring resonator for lasing applications at deep sub-wavelength scale. The combined contributions of hybrid plasmonic mode, circular-shaped cross section of nanowire, and ring resonator structure with round-trip whispering-gallery cavity, benefit reduced metallic absorption loss, tight mode confinement,(More)
— We propose and demonstrate a single-fiber bi-directional wavelength division multiplexing self-healing ring network for metro-access applications. By incorporating a simple bi-directional optical add-drop multiplexer at each network node as well as employing our proposed alternate-path switching scheme, the bi-directional traffic can be restored promptly(More)
We propose a novel fault detection and localization scheme for all-optical networks with the information of real-time data traffic. Our adaptive fault localization framework is based on combining passive and proactive monitoring solutions, together with adaptive management in two phases. Numerical results indicate that our proposed scheme has good(More)
Bi-directional WDM transmission is a technique that allows data to be transmitted simultaneously in both directions of a fiber, with different sets of wavelength channels for each direction. Compared with unidirectional WDM systems, it not only saves the cost of deploying extra fibers, but also allows more flexible bandwidth provisioning. To exploit this(More)
—We investigate the performance of maximum likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) receiver in the presence of the impairments from both the pulse carver-data modulator timing misalignment (TM) and polarization mode dispersion (PMD) in optically amplified return-to-zero (RZ) systems. RZ modulation format is commonly used in long-haul wavelength-division(More)
– This paper proposes and demonstrates a nonlinear distortion reduction scheme for subcarrier multiplexed optical CATV networks based on optical sampling and optical time-division multiplexing (OTDM) techniques. Inter-modulation distortion is reduced by about 10 dB for a 40-channel system. The proposed optical sampling and OTDM process is shown to induce(More)
