Enabling Transmission at 160 Gbit/s

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


To satisfy the demand for more transmission capacity, the fiber capacity is expanded by increasing both the number of wavelength channels (WDM) and the time-multiplexed bit rate (TDM) per WDM-channel. A channel bit rate of 40 Gbit/s will soon be installed and the next generation TDM bit rate of 160 Gbit/s is under active study in several research laboratories. As electrical signal processing is not available at 160 Gbit/s today, the TDM bit rate of 160 Gbit/s requires optical time division multiplexing (OTDM) technique.1 In this paper, we report on components and techniques enabling 160 Gbit/s OTDM transmission. We focus on semiconductor based devices.
