In this contribution, we report on the experimental investigation of an ultra-dense wavelength-division multiplexing (UDWDM) upstream link with up to 700 × 2.488 Gb/s polarization-division multiplexing differential quadrature phase-shift keying parallel upstream user channels transmitted over 80 km of standard single-mode fiber. We discuss challenges of the(More)
In this paper we present four-wave mixing (FWM) based parametric conversion experiments in p-i-n diode assisted silicon-on-insulator (SOI) nano-rib waveguides using continuous-wave (CW) light around 1550 nm wavelength. Using a reverse biased p-i-n waveguide diode we observe an increase of the wavelength conversion efficiency of more than 4.5 dB compared to(More)
We experimentally demonstrate the use of data-aided digital signal processing for format-flexible coherent reception of different 28-GBd PDM and 4D modulated signals in WDM transmission experiments over up to 7680 km SSMF by using the same resource-efficient digital signal processing algorithms for the equalization of all formats. Stable and regular(More)
Future converged fixed-mobile networks need high-speed radio links in deployment scenarios where fibre is not available or too expensive. In this paper, we present a field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based real-time transmission system using standard 10G Ethernet interfaces. The system comprises two parallel complex-valued data channels in each(More)
The numerical modelling of four-wave mixing in ultralong semiconductor optical amplifiers (UL-SOAs) is discussed. Inside the UL-SOA, complex wave mixing interactions take place so that time-domain modelling is an important requirement for the simulation model. We validate our simulations by comparison with measurements and show that the confinement factor(More)
A sequential optical frequency-division multiplexing technique using cross-phase modulation in fibers with exactly frequency-controlled optical subcarrier signals is proposed and demonstrated. 12 channels of 10-Gb/s ASK/DPSK signals with 20-GHz exact channel spacing are successfully multiplexed all-optically at 12 stages with 1-km intervals.
We will present techniques for all-optical wavelength conversion of phase-modulated signals using four-wave mixing and supercontinuum generation. Techniques for the improvement of the conversion efficiency will be studied. Mainly the suppression of Brillouin scattering and its impact on phase-distortions will be discussed. An assessment of its cascadability(More)
We studied the amplitude and phase noise suppression properties of an all-optical regenerator for differential phase-shift keying data. A detailed analytical investigation is performed and compared with numerical simulations for different working points. The results show that both amplitude and phase can be regenerated. However, simultaneous amplitude and(More)
We experimentally generate 28-GBd 6-ary polarization-shift keying quadrature phase-shift keying (6PolSK-QPSK) signals by utilizing a high-speed 4-channel digital-to-analog converter and an integrated dual-polarization I/Q modulator. In WDM transmission experiments over up to 4800 km standard single-mode fiber, we compare the performance of 126-Gb/s(More)
