Paper Abstract

A novel high-speed fiber Fabry-Perot tunable filter works fast enough (three orders of magnitude faster than commercially available ones) to allow packet switching for all-optical broadcast-and-select Wavelength Division Multiplexed network. Each node transmits at a Gb/s on dedicated wavelength over the passive-star coupler to all other nodes. The receiver at each node scans through all the wavelengths and selects signals addressed for that node.
