Paper Abstract

A system is proposed for the utilization of high-speed guided wave components to realize multiple-access data rates above 100 Mbits/s. Angular division multiplexing is used to obtain parallel optical signal transmission and processing in routing data packets between host computers. A novel application of an optically pumped half-ring laser to detect and regenerate multiplexed signals is suggested.
