Quantum dash (Q-Dash) passively mode-locked lasers (PMLLs) exhibit significant low frequency relative intensity noise (RIN), due to the high mode partition noise (MPN), which prevents the implementation of multilevel amplitude modulation formats such as PAM4. The authors demonstrate low frequency RIN mitigation by employing 8B/10B and Manchester encoding… CONTINUE READING
