Experimental results on wavelength-dependent angular dispersion in InGaAsP triangular lattice planar photonic crystals are presented. An abrupt variation of the angular dispersion is observed for TM-polarized waves whose frequencies are comprised between those of the fourth and sixth allowed bands. According to the crystal period, the measured angle of(More)
A heterogeneously integrated III-V-on-silicon laser is reported, integrating a III-V gain section, a silicon ring resonator for wavelength selection and two silicon Bragg grating reflectors as back and front mirrors. Single wavelength operation with a side mode suppression ratio higher than 45 dB is obtained. An output power up to 10 mW at 20 °C and a(More)
Next-generation wireless communications systems need to have high throughputs to satisfy user demand, to be low-cost, and to have an efficient management as principal features. Using a high-performance, low-cost reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) as a colorless remote modulator at the antenna unit, the wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM)(More)
We investigate experimentally all-optical clock recovery for return-to-zero (RZ) and nonreturn-to-zero (NRZ) differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) signals at 40 Gbits/s using a passively mode-locked quantum-dot Fabry-Perot (QD-FP) semiconductor laser. The QD-FP laser exhibits a beat spectrum linewidth of 80 kHz, which enables a recovered clock signal with(More)
FABULOUS is an EU project pertaining to the 7th framework program with the aim of proving the effectiveness of a Passive Optical Network adopting WDM FDM/FDMA approach, able to grant increased bandwidth, flexibility and cost savings with respect to the recently approved NG-PON2 architecture. In this paper we will show a system management, power and cost(More)
We demonstrate direct modulation of a heterogeneously integrated C-band DFB laser on SOI at 28 Gb/s with a 2 dB extinction ratio. This is the highest direct modulation bitrate so far reported for a membrane laser coupled to an SOI waveguide. The laser operates single mode with 6 mW output power at 100 mA bias current. The 3 dB modulation bandwidth is 15(More)
Injection-locking is based on the fact that the laser can be locked onto the frequency and the phase of an external injected optical signal. When a Fabry-Perot laser diode (FP LD) is locked onto a single-mode signal, its operation becomes single-mode. The injection-locked FP LD (IL-FP LD) has been proposed as a standard component for optical access network(More)
Two selected applications of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA) are discussed, namely linear in-line amplification in gigabit passive optical networks and fast nonlinear all-optical signal processing. We report on measurements demonstrating the suitability of quantum-dot (QD) and bulk SOA for the respective application areas. For in-line amplification(More)
