Abstract

An ultra-low timing-jitter clock recovery scheme based on EAM-MZM double-loop with the ability of simultaneous time-division demultiplexing is proposed and demonstrated in a 640Gbit/s OTDM transmission system. Compared with traditional clock recovery scheme based on OEO loop, significant timing-jitter improvement of the 40GHz recovered clock is realized: from 58fs to 30fs in back-to-back configuration and from 59fs to 35fs after 400km transmission in the 100Hz to 10MHz range, without increasing the overall system complexity and cost. Enabled by the proposed clock recovery and demultiplexing scheme, error-free performance of the OTDM system is achieved after 400km transmission with an average power penalty of 4dB.
