Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


A self-routing all-optical circuit for 40 Gbit/s DPSK optical packets is presented. The header information is self-processed to eventually drive an all-optical flip-flop, which serves as the optical pump in a coherent wavelength converter. Operation of the circuit is shown and switched optical packets with an overall limited penalty ( 1 dB) are reported.
