Abstract

In this study, we provide an experimental assessment of a quantum dash Fabry-Pe´rot mode-locked laser for all-optical clock recovery using data streams at 40, 80, 160, and 320 Gb/s. The data streams at 80, 160, and 320 Gb/s are phase coherent signals featuring no spectral component at 40 GHz. The 40 GHz recovered optical clock signal is characterized in terms of phase noise, timing jitter, dynamic power range, and wavelength dependence for the different data rates. Our experiments demonstrate a recovered optical clock signal from a 320 Gb/s data stream with a timing jitter of 94 fs and wavelength detuned by 23 nm. In addition, the performance of the optical time division multiplexing receiver at 80 and 160 Gb/s data signals employing the recovered clock as a demultiplexing control signal and as a clock for the bit-error-rate tester (BERT) is evaluated by bit error rate measurements on the demultiplexed data signals.
