Paper Abstract

Optical second harmonic generation in dense wavelength division multiplexing were used to monitor the performance of each channel in all optical networks. A poled Lithium-Niobate (PP-LNO3) device is used to convert C and L- Band optical WDM channels into half wavelength channels where silicon arrayed detectors and CMOS electronics were used to perform advanced digital signal processing to predict optical channel presence, channel power, signal to noise ratio and the quality (Q) factor parameter. With further processing, the bit error rate per channel can be estimated from the Q factor. The technique is realized on a system-on-a-chip CMOS technology which can potentially improve all optical networking architectures.
