This paper introduces a modulation-format transparent optical-label switching transmitter based on optical arbitrary waveform generation. Packets consisting of 100 Gb/s payloads with 40 Gb/s labels and all-optical label extraction are demonstrated. 1. Introduction Optical-label switching (OLS) is an enabling technology geared towards integration of data and(More)
This paper presents the concept of an optical transmitter based on optical arbitrary waveform generation (OAWG) capable of synthesizing Tb/s optical signals of arbitrary modulation format. Experimental and theoretical demonstrations in this paper include generation of data packet waveforms focusing on (a) achieving high spectral efficiencies in quadrature(More)
This paper presents single channel, 200 Gb/s, 20-bit DPSK packets generated by an optical arbitrary waveform generation based optical transmitter with chromatic dispersion precompensation, and their transmission through 100 km of single-mode-fiber and recovery.
—We successfully demonstrate a spectral phase-encoded time-spreading (SPECTS) optical code-division multiple-access (O-CDMA) field trial on an 80.8-km link within the Boston-South Network (BOSSNET) using a fully-integrated, polarization-independent arrayed-waveguide grating (AWG)-based encoder/decoder. The subpicosecond pulse source is based on an(More)
This paper presents a bandwidth-scalable, coherent optical transmitter based on the parallel synthesis of multiple spectral slices. As a proof-of-principle, two spectral slice, 6-ns DPSK and QPSK waveforms at 12 Gsymbols/s are generated and measured. 1. Introduction In order to meet projected Internet bandwidth demands, next generation optical transmitters(More)
—This paper discusses design, simulation, and experimental investigations of optical-code-division multiple-access (O-CDMA) networking using a spectral phase-encoded time spreading (SPECTS) method. O-CDMA technologies can potentially provide flexible access of optical bandwidths in excess of 1 Tb/s without relying on wavelength-or(More)
—This paper demonstrates an eight-user 9 Gb/s/user time-slotted spectral phase-encoded time-spreading (SPECTS) optical code division multiple access (O-CDMA) testbed. Experimentally measured performance is compared to numerical simulations. The testbed employs a novel compact fiber-pigtailed bulk-optics setup that utilizes a single two-dimensional (2-D)(More)
—This letter presents a high-capacity optical code-division multiple-access (O-CDMA) network testbed based on the spectral phase-encoded time-spreading technique. Two 10-Gb/s/user O-CDMA network architectures (time-slotted and time-slotted polarization multiplexed) are investigated. The first O-CDMA network testbed architecture utilizes eight encoders and a(More)
We demonstrate a high-performance optical arbitrary waveform shaper based on a single 10 GHz arrayed-waveguide grating with 64 loopback waveguides and integrated amplitude and phase modulators on each waveguide. The design is compact and self-aligning and allows for bidirectional operation. The device's complex transfer function is manipulated and measured(More)
