An OTDM-To-WDM Converter Using Optical Fourier Transformation

[Full Text]

OTDM to WDM, Optical Fourier Transformation (OFT), serial-to-parallel conversion, electro-optic time lens.



We demonstrate serial-to-parallel conversion of 40 Gbps optical time division multiplexed (OTDM) signal to 4x10 Gbps wavelength division-multiplexed (WDM) individual channels by using Optical Fourier Transformation (OFT) method. OFT is also called time lens technique and it is implemented by the combination of dispersive fiber and phase modulation. In this research, electro-optic phase modulator (EOM) is used as time lens. As our investigations, simulation results and bit error rate (BER) measurements are expressed.
