Analog photonic computing has been proposed and tested in recent years as an alternative approach for data recovery in fiber transmission systems. Photonic reservoir computing, performing nonlinear transformations of the transmitted signals and exhibiting internal fading memory, has been found advantageous for this kind of processing. In this work, we show that the effectiveness of the internal fading memory depends significantly on the properties of the signal to be processed. Specifically, we…

PAM-4 Transmission at 1550 nm Using Photonic Reservoir Computing Post-Processing
This paper shows that RC post-processing is remarkably efficient for multilevel encoding and for the use of very high launched optical peak power for fiber transmission up to 14 dBm, without including optical amplification, dispersion compensation, pulse shaping or other digital signal processing techniques.

Performance boost of time-delay reservoir computing by non-resonant clock cycle
It is shown that non-resonant ratios of these time scales have maximal memory capacities and that networks that originate from a system with resonant delay-times and clock cycles fail to utilize all of their degrees of freedom, which causes the degradation of their performance.
