Abstract

This paper provides theoretical and experimental studies of radio-frequency (RF) photonics processing techniques applicable in subcarrier-multiplexed optical-label switching (OLS) communications systems. The paper provides an overview of various label-coding technologies and introduces subcarrier multiplexing (SCM) as an attractive technology for OLS networks. All-optical-label extraction using optical filters, such as fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs), provides an effective means to demodulate the SCM labels without inducing RF fading effects caused by fiber dispersion. Furthermore, the role of fiber nonlinearities in the RF fading effects are theoretically and experimentally verified. The all-optical label extraction and rewriting processes constitute optical-label swapping,wherein 2R data regeneration can take place. Scalable and cascadable OLS systems are feasible by applying viable RF photonics technologies in all-optical-label processing.
