Characteristics of Noise and Photon Statistics of Fiber Components in Electro-Optical Systems
This thesis presents a comprehensive study of the role of the fiber replicator in electrooptical systems. In the all fiber optical diagnostic system for the National Ignition Facility‟s DANTE data
DSP based Chromatic Dispersion Equalization and Carrier Phase Estimation in High Speed Coherent Optical Transmission Systems
Coherent detection employing multilevel modulation formats has become one of the most promising technologies for next generation high speed transmission systems due to the high power and spectral e
Planification de réseaux WDM translucides avec qualité de transmission garantie
Routing and wavelength assignment in all-optical WDM networks has been deeply investigated in the literature. Most studies neglect the impact of transmission impairments on the feasibility of
A novel fault management approach for DWDM optical networks
This paper proposes an improvement of the existing protection schemes through the introduction of relative priorities among the different primary connections contending for the access to the protection path, and develops a mathematical model, based on which explicit expressions for the average connection availabilities are derived from both the classical protection schemes and the proposed priority‐aware one.
Advances in solution-processed near-infrared light-emitting diodes
Near-infrared light-emitting diodes based on solution-processed semiconductors, such as organics, halide perovskites and colloidal quantum dots, have emerged as a viable technological platform for
Optimized Omnidirectional High-Reflectance Using Octonacci Photonic Crystal for Thermographic Sensing Applications
The transmittance of waves through one-dimensional periodic and Octonacci photonic structures was studied using the theoretical transfer matrix method for both wave-polarization-modes. The first
Omnidirectional high reflector at 650, 850, 1300 and 1550 nm for optical fiber communication by fused silica/YBCO-superconductor Octonacci photonic crystal
The transfer matrix method (TMM) is deployed to determine the reflectance spectra of Octonacci photonic structures. First, the structures are designed using the TiO2 and SiO2 slabs materials. This


High-gain erbium-doped traveling-wave fiber amplifier
Traveling-wave amplification of a λ = 1.53 μm signal with +22-dB gain is achieved at 295 K in an Er3+-doped single-mode fiber using a λ = 514.5 nm pump source. The optimum fiber length for maximum
Terabit/second transmission experiments
This paper discusses the reasons for the recent acceleration in the exponential growth rate of single-fiber transmission capacity. The various transmission experiments with capacities of 1 Tb/s and
Measurements show that single‐mode waveguides can be constructed which have radiation losses of about 7 dB/km—very close to the intrinsic material scattering loss. These waveguides, with total losses
1 Tbit/s (100 Gbit/s × 10 channel) OTDM/WDM transmission using a single supercontinuum WDM source
100 Gbit/s/spl times/10 channel (1 Tbit/s) optical signals from a single supercontinuum WDM source are successfully transmitted over a 40 km dispersion-shifted fibre using a 400 GHz channel-spaced
Low-noise erbium-doped fibre amplifier operating at 1.54μm
High gain amplification of up to 28 dB has been observed in a 3m-long erbium-doped fibre. The amplifier has a spectral bandwidth of greater than 300GHz in the region of 1.536µm and a measured
Amplification in a Fiber Laser
Fiber lasers of neodymium-doped glass have been used on a pulsed basis to amplify 1.06-μ radiation. To prevent oscillation, the ends are polished at an angle such that reflected light is lost from
North American Field Trials and Early Applications in Telephony
This paper is a review of 19 early optical fiber telephone transmission system applications in North America. Each example indicates how the technology was applied, where it was applied, and what was
Undersea fiber optic networks: past, present, and future
Undersea lightwave transmission systems have made tremendous progress in both capacity and network architecture since their introduction in the mid 1980s, and technology and market opportunities indicate that this rapid growth will extend well into the future.
