Paper Abstract

In conventional optical packet label banks, recognizing different photonic labels would require the equal number of experiments. We have proposed a tunable multi-port optical spectrum synthesizer composed of NxN arrayed waveguide grating for photonic parallel signal processing. In this paper, the parallel encoding and decoding of 10Gbit/s pulse trains pattern in the spectrum domain using the multi-port optical spectrum synthesizer were experimentally examined. As shown in this research, the proposed N-port multiplexed optical spectrum synthesizer promises to provide a parallel optical processing in the photonic network and other optical signal processing.
