A novel and simple method to measure the amplitude and the phase of optical pulses is presented. The technique basically involves modulating the optical pulse train in a particular manner and then directly examining the resultant optical spectrum. This experimental measurement technique, which is extremely accurate and sensitive and can be implemented with(More)
The authors demonstrate the use of time-division multiplexing (TDM) to realize a high capacity optical star network. The fundamental element of the demonstration network is a 10 ps, wavelength tunable, low jitter, pulse source. Electrical data is encoded onto three optical pulse trains, and the resultant low duty cycle optical data channels are multiplexed(More)
