Abstract

Highly nonlinear fiber (HNLF) has shown to be a promising component for all optical signal processing at 160, 320 and 640 Gb/s data rates. We compare three demultiplexing techniques using a HNLF as the nonlinear medium. The first technique is based on cross phase modulation (XPM) in a nonlinear optical loop mirror. The second technique is based on XP M induced spectral broadening and filtering and the third technique is based on four wave mixing ( FWM). We demonstrate the demultiplexing from a 160 Gbls OTDM signal to a 10 Gb/s tributary in all three cases. We compare the three techniques on the basis of peiformance, complexity of implementation and the robustness.
