Utilizing a 6-mm-long hydrogenated amorphous silicon nanowaveguide, we demonstrate error-free (BER < 10(-9)) 160-to-10 Gb/s OTDM demultiplexing using ultralow switching peak powers of 50 mW. This material is deposited at low temperatures enabling a path toward multilayer integration and therefore massive scaling of the number of devices in a single photonic… (More)
We experimentally demonstrate frequency resolved optical gating (FROG) via four-wave mixing (FWM) in ultrahigh nonlinearity hydrogenated amorphous silicon waveguides. We demonstrate FROG characterization using a FWM architecture that mimics second harmonic generation (SHG) FROG for pulsewidths as low as 360 fs. Additionally, we demonstrate for the first… (More)
A fully coherent optical code-division multiple access (OCDMA) scheme that combines spectral phase encoding (SPE) and spectral line pairing to generate signals through heterodyne decoding is proposed. A simple balanced receiver performs sourceless heterodyne detection, canceling speckle noise and multiple-access interference (MAI). A 16 user 100% load… (More)
We present a scalable approach to optical time division multiplexing using a time lens. With simply a single device we demonstrate direct TDM to WDM conversion. Data rates up to 1.28 Tb/s are realized.
We experimentally demonstrate full simultaneous error-free demultiplexing of a 160-Gb/s OTDM data stream to 16x10-Gb/s WDM channels in a single nonlinear optical device. A temporal Fourier processor based upon a four-wave mixing (FWM) time lens is used to perform the demultiplexing operation. The FWM pump pulses are chirped such that they temporally overlap… (More)
We present a scalable approach to optical time division multiplexing using an all-optical transmultiplexer incorporating a time lens. With simply a single nonlinear device we numerically demonstrate direct conversion from time-division multiplexing (TDM) to wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) with an industry standard 100-GHz channel spacing. Data rates… (More)
Based on four-wave mixing (FWM) with an optical comb source (OCS), we experimentally demonstrate 26-way or 15-way wavelength multicasting of 10-Gb/s differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) data in a highly-nonlinear fiber (HNLF) or a silicon waveguide, respectively. The OCS provides multiple spectrally equidistant pump waves leading to a multitude of FWM… (More)

We present the first experimental demonstration of a practical, fully coherent, optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) scheme that can fully suppress multiple access interference (MAI) and speckle noise without phase locking or thresholding and gating. The scheme is sourced from an optical comb generator and uses spectral phase encoding and a… (More)
We have developed and tested a compact free-hand microsurgical tool-concept based on CP-OCT distance-sensor and 1-D actuation, which is capable of tracking the surface of surgical target tissue and compensating tool-tissue relative-motion with micrometer resolution.
