Reconfigurablele optical interconnects enable flexible and high-performance communication in multi-chip architectures to be arbitrarily adapted, leading to efficient parallel signal processing. The use of Opto-VLSI processors as beam steerers and multicasters for reconfigurable inter-chip optical interconnection is discussed. We demonstrate, as… (More)
Space-time-coded, free-space-based card-to-card optical interconnects for data centers and high-performance computing are proposed and experimentally demonstrated in this paper. Free-space propagation, which enables flexible and reconfigurable interconnections, is used in conjunction with 2 χ 2 extended Alamouti space-time coding, which reduces the… (More)
We propose an optical wireless communication network architecture employing an all-optical central communication unit and optical transceiver units. The network can easily be installed when communication network facilities are partially damaged by a disaster. The network performance is simulated at 1Gbit/s, over 1km under different weather conditions.
In this paper, we propose and experimentally demonstrate reconfigurable card-to-card optical wireless interconnects architecture with 16-Carrierless-Amplitude/Phase modulation. Results show that 3×40 Gb/s interconnection is achieved with 2 mW transmission power.
In this paper we propose and experimentally demonstrate a tunable laser structure cascading a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) that generates broadband amplified spontaneous emission and a reflective Opto-VLSI processor that dynamically reflects arbitrarily wavelengths and injects them back into the SOA, thus synthesizing an output signal of variable… (More)
A 1300nm electronically-tunable laser structure employing an Opto-VLSI processor and a semiconductor optical amplifier is demonstrated. Wavelength tuning is realized by reconfiguring the holographic diffraction grating of an Opto- VLSI processor, allowing specific wavelengths to lase through the semiconductor optical amplifier. A tuning range of 5.7 nm is… (More)
In this paper, we propose a time-token multi-Gb/s Wavelength Division Multiplexing Fibre Distributed Data Interface (WDM/FDDI) architecture and examine its throughput efficiency and delay under heavy load for different network configuration using discrete event simulator.
In this paper, we investigate the impact of the most common catastrophic and parametric faults in photonic systems. We demonstrate, using the example of a photonic correlator, the effectiveness of testing techniques for fault detection in photonic systems. To the best of our knowledge, this constitutes the first attempt to define a fault model and to… (More)
