Reconfigurable all-optical header recognition for packet switched networks

Tian, C., Zhang, Z., Roelens, M.A.F., Ibsen, M., Petropoulos, P. and Richardson, D.J. (2005) Reconfigurable all-optical header recognition for packet switched networks At e-Photon/ONE Summer School. 30 Aug - 02 Sep 2005.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We report on an optical packet switching system with a code-reconfigurable switching node. Packet headers are generated and decoded in an all-optical fashion using fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs). The reconfigurable 15-chip, 25ps/chip quaternary phase coding decoder is based on a uniform FBG, the code of which can be changed dynamically by thermally inducing appropriate phase shifts. We present characterization results on the code-reconfigurable FBG device as well as performance evaluation of the switching system.
