Paper Abstract

Optical Time Division Multiplexing (OTDM) is one of the important techniques by which data transmission capacity (aggregate bit rates) can be increased enormously. In this work, we demonstrate an 80 Gb/s time division multiplexing and demultiplexing experiment. By gain switching a DFB laser with 10 GHz RF signal we produced approximately 7 ps FWHM pulses. By using TDM technique we obtained 80 GHz signal. The demultiplexing of this TDM signal is carried out using two cascaded LiNbO3 Mach-Zehnder modulators.
