Abstract

A stable 10 GHz pedestal-free short pulse generation scheme consisting of cascaded commercial LiNbO 3 modulators has been proposed and successfully demonstrated experimentally. Fiber-based pulse compression and reshaping stages have been utilized to obtain a 1.38 ps optical pulse train with very little pedestal and 132 fs timing jitter. Excellent performance of multiplexing from 10   Gbits / s to 160 Gbits / s using this method indicates good potential for application in ultrahigh-speed optical time-division-multiplexing systems.
