All optical signal processing is a key functionality to ensure the operation and growth of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks. In this work we present a review of nonlinear applications of gain clamped semiconductor optical amplifiers (GC-SOA). An overview on recent results of wavelength conversion, signal reshaping, format conversion, and… (More)
Model-Based Development is a design methodology used for automotive embedded software, where the engineering process involving OEM and suppliers can bring benefits providing an efficient exchange of information, workflow and tool chain adequately and standardized. Despite, with the growing demand for new functions for next generation of vehicles, we… (More)
In this paper we experimentally assess the possibility of generating Raman amplification using to multiple low power lasers. This configuration is compared with a high power laser pump configuration for the same band.
