Paper Abstract

All optical demultiplexing of a 40 Gb/s signal into four channels at 10 Gb/s each and an 80 Gb/s signal into eight channels at 10 Gb/s each have been successfully demonstrated using four wave mixing and phase modulation in traveling wave semiconductor amplifiers. The latter is carried out with the amplifiers in a Mach-Zehnder configuration. Our calculations show that four wave mixing is expected to perform the demultiplexing function for signal speeds to 1 Tb/s.
