Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A single electroabsorption modulator was used to simultaneously demultiplex two 10 Gbit/s channels from a 40 Gbit/s OTDM data stream. Error-free operation was observed, and the effects of incoherent interference between the demultiplexed channel and residual facet reflections investigated.
