Optical packet compression in fibres based on time lens and solitonic effects

Optical packet compression in fibres based on time lens and solitonic effects
Optical packet compression in fibres based on time lens and solitonic effects
We experimentally demonstrate a novel optical packet compression scheme based on temporal imaging of TDM packets through time lensing in fibres, while maintaining the pulse width by virtue of soliton propagation during the compression stage. In particular, 4-bit packets at 10 Gbit/s were compressed into 4-bit packets at 40 Gbit/s. The time lens effect is based on switching the original 10 Gbit/s 4-bit packet with a suitably chirped square pulse and on compressing the chirped packet by propagating it in a standard single mode fibre.

Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate a novel optical packet compression scheme based on temporal imaging of TDM packets through time lensing in fibres, while maintaining the pulse width by virtue of soliton propagation during the compression stage. In particular, 4-bit packets at 10 Gbit/s were compressed into 4-bit packets at 40 Gbit/s. The time lens effect is based on switching the original 10 Gbit/s 4-bit packet with a suitably chirped square pulse and on compressing the chirped packet by propagating it in a standard single mode fibre.
