Polarization Bistable VCSELs and Their Applications to All-Optical Signal Processing Invited
10:30-11:00
2017-07-10 10:30 2017-07-10 11:00 America/Denver Polarization Bistable VCSELs and Their Applications to All-Optical Signal Processing We review recent progress in research of polarization bistable VCSELs and their applications to optical signal processing. Low power-consumption operation and reliable operation with BER better than 1×10^-9 of all-optical flip-flops, high speed memory operation, and header recognition are discussed.

Optical Time-Slot Interchanger and Si-based Delay Lines towards Integrated Feed-Forward Buffers
12:00-12:15
2017-07-10 12:00 2017-07-10 12:15 America/Denver Optical Time-Slot Interchanger and Si-based Delay Lines towards Integrated Feed-Forward Buffers We demonstrate a time-slot interchanger unit utilizing differentially biased SOA-MZI wavelength converters. Replacement of the fiber delay lines with integrated waveguides is also investigated. We report error-free rearrangement of three 10Gbps data packets for the fiber case and error-free transmission through the integrated delays Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Ballroom II
