Paper Abstract

A simple method using polarization multiplexing to double the number of channel capacity of a wavelength-multiplexed fiber-optic link is demonstrated. In this paper, we describe a four-channel double multiplexed fiber-optic link combining both wavelength-division-multiplexing and polarization multiplexing techniques. Singlemode polarization maintaining fibers, a pair of dual-channel integrated-optical waveguide Ti:LiNb03 wavelength multiplexer/demultiplexer, and bulk-optics broadband polarization beam splitter/combiner cubes are used in the demonstration.
