Paper Abstract

We report the implementation and characterization of microstrip broadband pulse shaping filters for multigigabit optical communications. These filters were specially designed for application where the dominant noise is signal dependent, such as optically preamplified receivers. They are easily fabricated, insensitive to manufacturing tolerances, have reasonable physical size, and are easily integrated with the other components of the optical receiver.
