Paper Abstract

All-Optical signal processing and routing avoid the optical-to-electrical and electrical-to-optical conversions and thus eliminates the bandwidth constrains set by conventional electronics technologies. It will form key building blocks for the next generation ultra-high speed and dynamic multi-casting optical networks. Polymer waveguide based photonics integrated circuits are promising in achieving high-performance optical signal processing circuits due to their large Electro-optic/thermo-optic coefficients and structure flexibility. In this paper, design examples such as dynamic channel equalizer, optical CDMA encoder and matched filter are analyzed. Simulation results are presented.
