640 Gbit/s return-to-zero to non-return-to-zero format conversion based on optical linear spectral phase filtering.


We propose a novel approach for all-optical return-to-zero (RZ) to non-return-to-zero (NRZ) telecommunication data format conversion based on linear spectral phase manipulation of an RZ data signal. The operation principle is numerically analyzed and experimentally validated through successful format conversion of a 640 Gbit/s coherent RZ signal into the… (More)
