Abstract

With a numerical model of a Quantum Well Electro-Absorption Modulator (QW-EAM) we show all-optical demultiplexing based on Cross Absorption Modulation (XAM) of a 40 Gb/s channel out of a 160 Gb/s Optical Time Division Multiplexed (OTDM) channel. The model includes propagation equations to describe system related issues. The optical input power dependency of the QW-EAM is described using a phenomenological sweep-out mechanism. The absorption coefficient is calculated based on the carrier distributions in the active region and the effects of carrier heating and spectral hole burning are included. Optimum clock pulses and length active region are determined based on the model.
