Paper Abstract

Ultra-high data rate optical communication links require multiplexing to separate channels. This is usually achieved electronically, limiting the data rate to the speed of the driving electronics. We describe a new means of optical-frequency division multiplexing which makes use of the spatial and frequency modulating characteristics of acoustooptic Bragg cells. A two channel proof-of-principal experiment is presented.
