Abstract

We propose and demonstrate data exchange in both the wavelength and time domains at a fine granularity, i.e., low-speed tributary channel exchange of wavelength-division multiplexed high-speed optical time-division multiplexed signals. Using the parametric depletion effect of cascaded second-order nonlinear interactions in a periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) waveguide, we experimentally implement 10 Gbit / s tributary channel exchange between two 160 Gbit / s signals with a power penalty of less than 4 dB at a bit-error rate of 10 9 . Moreover, taking into account the waveguide propagation loss, we derive analytical solutions to investigate the signal depletion (SD) and extinction ratio (ER) performance of the PPLN-based data exchange. The theoretical analyses indicate that low waveguide propagation loss benefits large achievable SD and ER.
