    We theoretically investigate and experimentally demonstrate a scheme for all-optical carrier recovery in loopback access networks that avoids orthogonal or complex modulation formats for the downstream or upstream signals. ...
  • Fabrication and experimental demonstration of a four-channel × 40 Gb/s TriPleX all-optical wavelength conversion platform 

    Avramopoulos, Hércules; Klein, E.J.; Stamatiadis, C.; Vyrsokinos, K.; Stampoulidis, L.; Lazarou, I.; Schrenk, Bernhard; Leinse, A.; Heideman, R.; Bruinink, C. (2011)
    Article

    We present a scalable circuit that performs multichannel, all-optical wavelength conversion employing semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) and a densely integrated TriPleX photonic chip. The TriPleX device performs chirp ...
  • Flexible WDM/FTDM passive optical network with RZ-seeded all-optical sub-wavelength grid engine 

    Schrenk, Bernhard; Katopodis, Vasilis; Bauwelinck, Johan; Lázaro Villa, José Antonio; Yin, Xin; Bakopoulos, Paraskevas; Spyropoulou, Maria; Qiu, Xing Z.; Avramopoulos, Hércules (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013)
    Conference report

    All-optical FDM grid generation and channel selection is experimentally demonstrated through optical signal processing. Full-duplex 10G/2×10G transmission with reflective ONUs is validated for 20dB budget and 25km reach. ...
  • Full-duplex 20/10 Gb/s WDM-PON with remodulation of chirped ASK and multi-level quaternary PAM and OFDM 

    Lázaro Villa, José Antonio; Bernhard, Schrenk; Maziotis, Alexandros; Cano Valadéz, Iván Nicolás; Bakopoulos, Paraskevas; Prat Gomà, Josep Joan; Avramopoulos, Hércules (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A full-duplex 20/10Gb/s WDM-PON is demonstrated by all-optical carrier recovery technique, showing that it is efficient and flexible for being applied to different downstream signals as non-/chirped ASK or multilevel signals ...
  • On an ONU for full-duplex 10.5 Gbps/lambda with shared delay interferometer for format conversion and chirp filtering 

    Schrenk, Bernhard; Stamatiadis, C.; Lazarou, I.; Maziotis, Alexandros; de Valicourt, Guilhem; Lázaro Villa, José Antonio; Prat Gomà, Josep Joan; Avramopoulos, Hércules (2011)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Chirped IRZ downstream is used together with a delay interferometer and a RSOA at a low complexity ONU for full-duplex 10.5Gbps transmission on a single wavelength, supported by modulation format conversion and optical ...

    Recent optical technologies are providing higher flexibility to next generation access networks: on the one hand, providing progressive FTTx and specifically FTTH deployment, progressively shortening the copper access ...
  • Quaternary TDM-PAM and its implications for TDMA equipment 

    Dris, Stefanos; Bauwelinck, Johan; Yin, Xin; Schrenk, Bernhard; Lázaro Villa, José Antonio; Katopodis, Vasilis; Bakopoulos, Paraskevas; Verbrugghe, Jochen; Avramopoulos, Hércules (2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The migration towards a 20 Gb/s quaternary TDM-PAM passive optical network with chirped and non-linear optical transmitters is experimentally studied. We show that a loss budget of 27.3 dB is compatible together with a ...
  • Quaternary TDM-PAM as upgrade path of access PON beyond 10Gb/s 

    Verbrugghe, Jochen; Schrenk, Bernhard; Bauwelinck, Johan; Yin, Xin; Dris, Stefanos; Lázaro Villa, José Antonio; Katopodis, Vasilis; Bakopoulos, Paraskevas; Avramopoulos, Hércules (2012-12-10)
