Paper Abstract

The ever increasing consumer demands on the present communication infrastructure has led to an interest in multigigabit long haul transmission systems. Techniques such as wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) are employed to increase the present channel capacity while optical amplifiers are used to extend the maximum attainable fiber reach. We have been investigating the effectiveness of pseudo-lumped element group delay equalizer realizations on gallium arsenide (GaAs), drawing specifically on the system implications of such networks with various modulation formats. Although designed to correct for a given length of fiber, the equalizers are evaluated for larger fiber spans to illustrate a measure of their robustness.
