The channel characteristics of modulating retro-reflector (MRR) free-space optical (FSO) link are studied by using wave-optics (WO) simulation method. The optical wave launched from the transceiver is reflected back in the same direction to the transceiver by the use of cube-corner reflector (CCR). This propagation process is divided into three parts:… (More)
We demonstrate high-energy soliton pulse generation from a large mode area fiber, tunable from 1560 nm up to 1700 nm, pumped with a 10 MHz, 1.5-ps time lens source at 1544 nm.
We demonstrate a novel method for high sensitivity measurement of pulsed light using a GaAsP photomultiplier tube. 2nd- and 3rd-order autocorrelations are obtained simultaneously by modulating the input power and analyzing the RF harmonic components.
