Paper Abstract

Proposed in this paper is a novel packet-level self-synchronization scheme for slotted optical packet-switched networks (OPNs), where a clock denoting the beginning of each packet is extracted to perform address recognition, ultra-fast optical sampling, or payload delineation. The effect of self-phase modulation (SPM) in semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and the interfering characteristics of Mach-Zehnder Interferometer (MZI) are combined to make the proposal simple, fast and integrable, with no special treatment at wavelengths, polarization, intensity, or bit-period of the marker pulses.
