We propose a very fast heterodyne technique to recover the amplitude and phase of short optical pulses generated e.g. by a mode-locked laser. A linearly swept frequency source is used to scan the entire optical spectrum of the mode-locked laser in a single continuous sweep. The beat signal is recorded on a fast oscilloscope and then digitally proce...
Conference Paper
Device characterization of Quantum-Dash semiconductor mode-locked laser using a continuous tuning swept source is presented. This technique is linear, simple and does not require any prior information about the signal under test.
Article
The future technology migration in access networks compels the development of key innovative transmitters operating at 10 Gb/s around 1550 nm and capable of transmitting data in extended reach passive optical networks (>60 km). A laser modulated directly appears to be a low cost and a simple solution to address these needs. However, the extinction...

A graded-index multi-mode fiber has been optimized to sustain a single excited mode when coupled with a standard single-mode fiber at 1310/1550nm while offering large effective modal bandwidth at 850nm under VCSEL excitations. Modeling and experimental results are presented.
Article
The capability of measuring the spectral and temporal phase of an optical signal is of fundamental importance for the advanced characterization of photonic and optoelectronic components, biochemical sensors, structural monitoring sensors and distributed sensor networks. To address this problem, several techniques have been developed (frequency-reso...

In the present work, we report on the spectral and temporal phase measurement capabilities of OFDR. Precise characterization of spectral phase information is demonstrated by retrieving the phase response of a commercial optical filter, the Finisar Waveshaper 1000 S/X programmable in attenuation and phase over C+L band (1530-1625 nm). Additionally,...
Conference Paper
In order to achieve indoor positioning, and hence a real continuity of the positioning service in all environments, we designed a new pseudolite-based system using the so-called repealites. A single GNSS-like signal is transmitted from all the repealites (typically 4 for 3D positioning): this approach simplifies both the synchronization process (be...

We propose and demonstrate a new modified Lyot filter to independently ensure the channel amplitude equalization and the bandwidth tuning functions. The device consists of hybrid liquid crystal interferometers. We show numerically and experimentally that for a modified four-stage Lyot filter, the two first interferometers ensure equalization functi...

We propose and demonstrate a novel optical imple- mentation to simultaneously improve the contrast and increase the finesse of a classical -stage Lyot filter. The new device based on the multiple-passage concept uses two mirrors placed at the ex- tremities of the filter. The light beam passes through the structure back and forth and each passage ha...

One of the most important functionality in any optical network is the filtering function. High performances devices dedicated to this function are desirable, especially for DWDM (Dense wavelength Division Multiplexing) configurations. The optical filters must be adapted to the high density spectrum, and so, have a high contrast (over 40dB) and a Fu...

The paper presents experimental validations of a new approach of GNSS indoor positioning. Combining the best of pseudolites [1] and repeaters [2], the new “repealite” technique allows carrier phase measurements (in order to improve positioning accuracy and multipath mitigation) and self synchronised transmissions. Thus, this method greatly simplifi...
Article
We propose and demonstrate here the high efficiency of concurrent time and frequency analysis to detect and unambiguously identify the coupled cavities in real photonic crystals containing imperfections and/or process-induced disorder. This procedure when applied to reflectograms recorded using phase-sensitive optical low-coherence reflectometry al...
Article
Full-text available
An alternative method of ring resonators (RRs) spectral analysis is proposed and demonstrated here. Unlike earlier procedures, the phase information is extracted here from pure spectral intensity data to examine the RR signatures in the time domain. This procedure gives a direct access to all resonator parameters. Also, it is well suited for an aut...

We investigate the impact of disorder on the prop-agation of photonic crystal waveguide modes using phase-sensi-tive optical low-coherence reflectometry. Combined with a suit-able numerical processing, this technique reveals a considerable amount of information that we cast as time-wavelength reflectance maps. By comparing measurements on different...

In this paper, we propose and demonstrate an original exploitation of relaxation oscillations of erbium-doped-fiber laser ring resonators based on a general model for Er cross-sectional characterization. Its main advantage as compared to other existing exploitations relies on the fact that only weak approximations relative to spatial light distribu...

We propose a solution to improve gain-clamped EDFA stabilization time by inserting in the conventional laser loop configuration an extra SOA. Experimental results demonstrate stabilization time as short as 0.2¿s in a purposely-considered critical situation.

We demonstrate that in addition to their role in tuning the wavelength of an N-stage hybrid liquid-crystal Šolc filter, liquid-crystal cells can also be used to vary the transmission bandwidth of such filter around any of the tuned wavelength. This bandwidth tuning is based on the variation of the number of stages by what we call here an “optical c...

This paper draws attention to the basic principles governing reflections in uniform Bragg reflectors (BR) when measured employing optical low coherence reflectometry (OLCR) technique. Using computations based on transfer matrix method (TMM), we first showed a strong spectral dependence of Bragg reflectograms on an OLCR probe spectrum. Later, this d...
Article
The main problem of integrated laser/Mach-Zehnder modulators is the modulated feedback due to reflections on the output multimode image (MMI). We have solved this problem changing the modulator technology from "deep-ridge" to "shallow-ridge" technology. In that case, the index step seen by the light in the MMI is far lower, then reflections which a...

We report here on the high potential of low-coherence reflectometry, a basically nondestructive technique, to detect and to localize spatially the degradation damaged regions in ∼1.3 μm laser diodes on InP. Using ∼1.3 μm low-coherence probe, three Fabry–Perot lasers with identical active regions (compressively strained multi-quantum wells) and exhi...

Summary form only given. The high complexity of present photonic integration technologies on InP necessitates a thorough knowledge of the prominence of reflections in guiding layers as they can profoundly influence the circuit performance. These can originate at spatially localized refractive index discontinuities in the guide and can have several...

We demonstrate here that hydrogenation offers a simple and attractive solution to fabricate low-loss InGaAsP/InP photonic integrated circuits operating at 1.56 μm. Using InGaAsP/InP buried waveguide test structures closely imitating the passive sections of photonic circuits, we first demonstrate that hydrogenation helps to bring down significantly...
Conference Paper
The Zn and Be doped (1 to 2×10<sup>18</sup> cm<sup>-3</sup>) p-InP samples are first hydrogenated by exposing to a deuterium (D) plasma to passivate (or neutralize) acceptors through dopant-H interactions. Later on, subsequent to 10 min isochronal anneals up to 450°C, the reactivation of holes is monitored to determine activation energies, ~0.7 eV...

We show here that the high propagation losses often measured at /spl sim/1.56 /spl mu/m in InGaAsP-InP buried-ridge stripe waveguides can be significantly brought down by implementing hydrogenation (exposure to deuterium plasma) as the last step to device termination. For example, losses as high as /spl sim/30 dB/cm measured in conventional as-proc...
