We develop a method for the repetition rate multiplication by a factor of 2 n of pseudorandom bit sequences (PRBSs). It makes recursive use of an optical or-gate in feedback and ensures that the complexity of the resulting circuit is independent of the multiplication factor or the PRBS order to be rate multiplied. We employ an all-optical circuit comprising of two nonlinear fiber Sagnac interferometers and show error-free quadrupling of 12.5-Gb/s PRBSs to 50 Gb/s.

    • "According to the nature of the M-sequence extraction, every proper decimation of an M-sequence is itself an M-sequence [8], therefore the M-sequence PRBS can obtain 2 n times repetition rate multiplication with a T/2 n delay feedback. Previously, Kouloumentas has used the NOLM rings to realize the repetition rate multiplication of PRBS [9], However using NOLM rings entails a too large energy consumption. The power of control light is very high (the power of feedback control light is up to 620 mW in the experiment ) for the small nonlinear coefficient of optical fiber; secondly , it is unfavorable to integrate in the future.

    ABSTRACT: A scheme for all-optical repetition rate multiplication of pseudorandom bit sequences (PRBS) is demonstrated with all-optical wavelength conversion and optical logic gate 'OR' based on cascaded Tera-Hertz Optical Asymmetric Demultiplexers (TOADs). Its feasibility is verified by multiplication experiments from 500 Mb/s to 4 Gb/s for 23-1 PRBS and from 1 Gb/s to 4 Gb/s for 27-1 PRBS. This scheme can be employed for rate multiplication for much longer cycle PRBS at much higher bit rate over 40 Gb/s when the time-delay, the loss and the dispersion of the optical delay line are all precisely managed. The upper limit of bit rate will be restricted by the recovery time of semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) finally.

    ABSTRACT: The output characteristics of nonlinear optical fiber-loop mirror are analyzed in detail when the pump pulses with the same wavelength are input in the both directions for recovering the clock component of the signal spectrum. It is found that the double output pulses are produced in the transmission port of the nonlinear optical fiber-loop mirror. The output pulse peaks are located in time domain at the rising and falling edges of the pump pulses. It is demonstrated that the rising and falling edges of the pump pulse can be directly extracted by this method. Through numerical simulation, the effects of the relative delay of pump pulses and the dispersion of fiber on the characteristics of output pulses are studied. By spectrum analysis, it is found that the spectrum of output pulse sequence includes the clock components of the pump pulse sequence, and a new idea is provided for all-optical clock extraction.

    ABSTRACT: We experimentally demonstrate high-speed optical pseudorandom bit sequence (PRBS) multiplexing with coarse and fine bit-rate tuning capability and a switchable order using optical delays. Data multiplexing of 80 Gbit/s and 160 Gbit/s is shown, each with a tunable rate using a conversion/dispersion-based continuously tunable optical delay and tunable PRBS order with large switchable fiber delays. A 7% bit-rate tunability, i.e., 80-85.6 Gbit/s and 160-171.2 Gbit/s, is shown for both 2(7)-1 and 2(15)-1 PRBS. The rf spectra before and after multiplexing are measured in each case and show a suppression ratio of >30 dB, exhibiting the expected PRBS spectral characteristics.
