A low-loss and highly birefringent polarization maintaining photonic crystal fiber has been fabricated. The fiber loss and modal birefringence at 1550 nm were 1.3 dB/km and 1.4x10 -3 , respectively.
We demonstrate the generation of symmetrical supercontinuum of over 40 nm in the 1.55 m region (1540 - 1580 nm) by injecting 1562 nm, 2.2 ps, 40 GHz optical pulses into a 200 m-long, dispersion-flattened polarization-maintaining photonic crystal fiber. The chromatic dispersion and dispersion slope of the fiber at 1.55 m are -0.23 ps/km/nm and 0.01… (More)
3 Tbit/s (160 Gbit/s/spl times/19 channels) optical signal is successfully transmitted over 40 km dispersion-shifted fiber. Low noise supercontinuum signal pulse sources and 70 nm bandwidth tellurite-based optical amplifiers are used for 3 Tbit/s signal generation and amplification.
We propose an optical flip-flop circuit composed of two-port resonant-tunneling filters based on a two-dimensional photonic crystal slab with a triangular air-hole lattice. This circuit can function as an optical digital circuit that synchronizes input data with a clock. In this report, we demonstrate that this circuit can achieve a fast operating speed… (More)
80-Gbit/s (20 Gbit/s/spl times/4) optical time-division multiplexing is demonstrated using an optical time-division multiplexer based on a hybrid integrated planar lightwave circuit. Each channel signals independently modulated by mixing in semiconductor optical amplifiers.
We introduce a novel laser synthesizer with a simple configuration that contains no phase lock loop. This laser synthesizer generates an optical beat signal by modulating a CW light using a phase modulator and selecting two line spectra from modulation sidebands using serially-connected fiber Bragg gratings. With this configuration, the optical beat signal… (More)
