Cross talk in a fiber-loop optical buffer

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Optical devices operating as a buffer or as memory are needed in future optical communication systems, for instance, in ATM or packet-switching systems. A promising device is the fiber loop buffer.1–4 It is expected that the storage time (or number of circulations of data packets in the fiber loop) is affected mainly by accumulated and amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) and by cross talk. In this contribution we report on what is. to our knowledge, the first experimental study of the effect of cross talk in a fiber-loop buffer and on bit-error-rate (BER) measurements, demonstrating a BER < 10−9 for as many as N = 23 circulations in the loop.
