Paper Abstract

The present work uses picosecond optical pulses from a synchronously pumped modelocked dye laser to switch pulse-forming transmission line networks. Transfer efficiency of over 30 percent and pulse width of 50 ps has been obtained using a switching junction fabricated on an Fe-doped semi-insulating InP substrate. Propagation of these short pulses are subject to dispersion along the microstrip lines. Numerical solution using the Fast Fourier. Transform is performed in the time domain to visualise the deformation of the pulses as they propagate along the microstrip line.
