We propose and numerically demonstrate a packet compression scheme based on re-coding of complex modulation formats through the use of a delay line interferometer (DLI) followed by a temporal gate. A variety of modulation formats can be accommodated and high compression factors can be obtained by using multiple DLIs to achieve higher order modulation formats.
