In this paper, we experimentally demonstrate wireless transmission of optical intensity modulation/direct detection-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (IM/DD-OFDM) signals in an underwater channel using a field programmable gate array based real-time transmitter. The real-time transmission of a 405 nm 1.45 Gbit/s optical OFDM signal through a 4.8 m(More)
A passive optical network (PON) is a highly capable access network that effectively converges several service providers, without suffering from any bandwidth deficiency. However, a PON consisting of a single optical line terminal (OLT) for multiple service providers increases the computational complexity for data packet processing in the OLT, resulting in a(More)
An integrated fiber-to-the-homes (FTTHs) and wireless sensor network (WSN) provides a cost-effective solution to build up an immaculate ubiquitous-City (U-city). The key objectives of effective convergence of FTTH and WSN are less computational complexity for data packet processing, low installation cost, and good quality of services. In this paper, we(More)
We propose and experimentally demonstrate a hybrid WDM/OCDMA ring with a dynamic add/drop function based on Fourier code for local area networks. Dynamic function is implemented by mechanically tuning the Fourier encoder/decoder for optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) encoding/decoding. Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) is utilized for node(More)
The use of the downhill simplex method is proposed for multivariate identification of phase difference and reflectivity of low-loss sampled fiber Bragg gratings (SFBGs). Phase differences between two FBGs, which are determined by optical lengths between two adjacent FBGs, are the most important parameter in SFBG fabrication. The frequency of phase(More)
We propose a novel optical delay interferometer (ODI) with an optically controllable phase shifter. The proposed interferometer is implemented by using a phase shifted fiber Bragg grating and an Yb(3+)/Al(3+) co-doped optical fiber. The phase of the delayed optical signal is linearly controlled by adjusting the induced pumping power of a laser diode at 976(More)
