Paper Abstract

Optical demultiplexing is an important technique for retrieving data from high speed optical transmission systems. In this technique, the data bits are first demultiplexed to much lower data rate bit streams from which the information is retrieved using conventional electronic techniques. We have performed optical demultiplexing experiments for 80 Gb/s and 160 Gb/s optical time division multiplexed signals. These experiments include data generation, clock recovery and optical demultiplexing to lower data rate bit streams. The optical devices used for demultiplexing are, LiNbO3 modulators, four wave mixing in semiconductor amplifiers, and semiconductor amplifier based Mach-Zehnder interferometers. The high speed performance limits of these devices would also be discussed.
