A technique that employs a single laser beam is proposed for recording the retardance of an optical anisotropic object. The retardance pattern is converted into a polarization pattern using a quarter-wave plate and recorded on a polarization-sensitive medium. The recording medium is illuminated by homogeneous polarized light, and the light transmitted by… (More)
We report the details of a 40-Gbit/s soliton transmission field experiment over 1,020 km, which used a dispersion-compensation technique. The transmission distance was extended to 1,360 km by installing in-line synchronous modulation.
