Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the use of the acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) in a multiwavelength crossconnect that eliminates back-to-back optical-to-electrical and electrical-to-optical conversions in the central office. We show that the ability of the AOTF for multiple wavelength selection can be exploited to reduce the component count in a multiwavelength cross-connect.
