We demonstrate a tunable multi-wavelength Brillouin-Raman fiber laser with 20 GHz wavelength spacing. The setup is arranged in a linear cavity by employing 7.2 and 11 km dispersion compensating fibers (DCF) in addition to a 30 cm Bismuth-oxide erbium doped fiber. In this experiment, for the purpose of increasing the Stokes lines, it is necessary to optimize(More)
The invention of turbo codes has attracted many researchers to explore various fields regarding turbo codes since it provides better error rate performance compared to the existing codes. Good error rate performance gives a penalty to the complexity of the codes. It includes the complexity of decoding algorithm and iterative decoding. This paper reviews the(More)
The performance of ASK over DCDM for up to seven channels is reported. The aggregate bit rate of 70 Gb/s is achieved with only 160-GHz modulation bandwidth. The clock and data recovery are realized at 10-GHz clock rate, which is very economic and efficient. At 7 × 10 Gb/s, the worst receiver sensitivity of −10 dBm, OSNR of 41.5 dB and chromatic dispersion(More)
We experimentally demonstrate a simple widely tunable multiwavelength Brillouin/Erbium fiber laser that can be tuned over the entire C-band, thereby greatly improving the tuning range limitation faced by the previous Brillouin-erbium fiber laser architectures. Tuning range of 39 nm from 1527 nm to 1566 nm, which is only limited by the amplification(More)
(SDD) technique. All the components involved in the network were specified according to the available market product in order to simulate the actual environment as close as possible. The result shows that for bit error rate (BER) of 10 −9 , the network is able to perform with 20 km Single Mode Fiber (SMF) spanning from the central office (CO) and 1.48 km(More)
Cross-entropy (CE)-based stopping criteria for turbo iterative decoding are known to outperform fixed-iteration stopping criteria at high signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). While CE-based stopping criteria have a range of thresholds, a high-value threshold for small frame sizes, and vice versa, should be used. It is difficult to advocate the value that can be(More)
We demonstrate a single-spacing, multi-wavelength Brillouin-Raman fiber laser utilizing an enhanced cavity of nonlinear amplifying loop mirror. In this structure, the optimization of multi-wavelength lasing is done with proper adjustments of coupling ratio and Brillouin pump power. When setting the Raman pump power to 300 mW, up to 28 channels with an(More)
