All-optical generation of 40 Gb/s single sideband signals using a fiber Bragg grating
2010 (English)In: Optics Communications, ISSN 0030-4018, E-ISSN 1873-0310, Vol. 283, no 12, 2492-2495 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
In this work, we demonstrate a reliable all-optical technique for performing optical double sideband (ODSB) to single sideband (OSSB) format conversion of a 40 Gb/s non-return-to-zero signal. It is based on the optimization of a detuned optical filter, which was implemented on a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) with a complex apodization profile. An OSSB signal with negligible distortion was obtained, as the FBG presented a nearly ideal frequency response. Higher tolerance to chromatic dispersion enabled by the OSSB signal in comparison to the ODSB signal was demonstrated on both simulation and experimental results. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V.
