We demonstrate an erbium-doped fiber laser passively mode-locked by a multilayer molybdenum disulfide (MoS(2)) saturable absorber (SA). The multilayer MoS(2) is prepared by the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method and transferred onto the end-face of a fiber connector. Taking advantage of the excellent saturable absorption of the fabricated MoS(2)-based(More)
We demonstrate ultrafast optical modulation using a single 1-μm-diameter graphene-decorated microfiber, which is fabricated with a convenient and controllable evanescent-field-induced deposition method. Benefitting from the significantly enhanced light-graphene interaction of the subwavelength transvers dimension of the microfiber and accumulation of the(More)
A calibration-free electrical method is demonstrated for measuring the frequency response of high-speed Mach-Zehnder modulators (MZMs) based on low-frequency detection. The method achieves the high-frequency modulation index and half-wave voltage measurement of MZMs by the low-frequency electrical spectrum analysis of the two-tone and bias-modulated optical(More)
A calibration-free electrical method is proposed for measuring the absolute frequency response of directly modulated semiconductor lasers based on additional modulation. The method achieves the electrical domain measurement of the modulation index of directly modulated lasers without the need for correcting the responsivity fluctuation in the(More)
We propose a self-clocking method based on in-band clock pilot insertion at the transmission data signal. The method can achieve clock recovery without the need for an ultrafast phase comparator and a phase-locked loop in the receiver. We demonstrate fast synchronization, low timing jitter, and a highly stable recovered clock from a 160 Gbit/s optical(More)
We propose a self-calibrating method for high-frequency response measurement of electro-optic phase modulators based on two-tone modulation. The method utilizes the electrical domain measurement of heterodyning spectrum between the two-tone modulation optical signal and the frequency-shifted optical carrier, and eliminates the need to correct the(More)
A wafer-level and high-efficiency radio frequency (RF) testing of a photonic device is highly desired in the fabrication and characterization of large-scale photonic integration circuits. In this work, we propose on-wafer probing kit designs, and demonstrate a damage-free, self-calibrated RF characterization of an integrated silicon photonic transceiver(More)
An extinction-ratio-independent electrical method is proposed for measuring chirp parameters of Mach-Zehnder electric-optic intensity modulators based on frequency-shifted optical heterodyne. The method utilizes the electrical spectrum analysis of the heterodyne products between the intensity modulated optical signal and the frequency-shifted optical(More)
A bias-independent and self-calibrated measurement is proposed for the high-frequency response of dual-parallel Mach–Zehnder modulators (DPMZMs) based on two-tone and bias-swing modulation. The two-tone and bias-swing sidebands beat with each other and generate the desired low-frequency beat notes, which allows to extracting the modulation depths and(More)
