Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate optical multiplexing of 40 Gbit/s channels at different wavelengths onto a single 640 Gbit/s channel and subsequent 640 to 10 Gbit/s demultiplexing using cascaded nonlinear optical loop mirrors. An average penalty of ~3.5 dB at 10−9 BER is observed after the nonlinear processes.
