We report a detailed experimental characterization of the wavelength conversion of 10 Gb/s non-return-to-zero differential phase shift keying (NRZ-DPSK) optical signals based on four wave mixing (FWM) in a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). The performance of this coherent wavelength converter is compared with theoretical results and found to perform… (More)
We present numerical results relative to a bistable optical device comprised of an asymmetric Fabry-Perot cavity embedding a nonlinear optical medium. Both the real and imaginary part of the third order nonlinear susceptibility are considered in our calculations. Optimized device operation, expressed in terms of the contrast ratio between the two stable… (More)
Optical phase conjugation (OPC) and distributed Raman amplifier (DRA) combination (OPC-DRA) is demonstrated as a potential enabling solution for reduction of signal fading due to interplay of self-phase modulation and group velocity dispersion of a sub-carrier multiplexed (SCM) mm-wave radio-over-fiber (RoF) transmission link. The present work is focused on… (More)
An efficient genetic algorithm (GA) assisted bit error rate (BER) monitoring in digital communication link using a sum of Gaussian approximation (SGA) to the non-Gaussian link output variate is presented. The validity of the proposed method is established by both theory and experiment in three specific scenarios viz. non-coherent amplitude-shift-keying,… (More)
An efficient genetic algorithm (GA) assisted bit error rate (BER) estimation method using a sum of Gaussian approximation (SGA) for a single channel optical direct detection DPSK system affected by nonlinear phase noise is presented.
A comparison between path and span protection schemes has been carried out for a just-enough-time (JET) based optical burst switched (OBS) network in case of single link failure utilizing the network link state information.
A comparison between path and span protection schemes has been carried out for a just-enough-time based optical burst switched network in case of single link failure utilizing the network link state information. Further, depending on the type of protection strategy and traffic load, the wavelength resource requirement has also been evaluated maintaining a… (More)
