Paper Abstract

We have been exploring the use of fiber optics for the application of very high speed (>>1 Gbit/s) binary code generation. In this paper we present our initial results which involve fiber optic generators based on time-multiplexing and fiber optic analogues of electronic digital PN shift register-based generators where the XOR operation is accomplished via a pair of laser diodes connected back-to-back. Experimental results of a 500 Mbit/s (RZ) 32 laser diode prototype and a 3.85 Gbit/s (RZ) 4 diode system are presented along with experimental results of a laser diode-based XOR prototype.
