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.
