80-Gbit/s PMD Compensation Using a Hybrid Integrated All-Optical Exor Circuit


An 80-Gb/s PMD compensation is demonstrated using a compact differential group delay (DGD) monitor. The monitor is a SOA/PLC hybrid integrated wavelength converter that operates as an all-optical exOR circuit. A large DGD of 25 ps was successfully compensated.
