Abstract

We demonstrate all-optical demultiplexing of a high-bandwidth, time-division multiplexed 160 Gbit / s signal to 10 Gbit / s channels, exploiting slow light enhanced four-wave mixing in a dispersion engineered, 96 μm long planar photonic crystal waveguide. We report error-free (bit error rate < 10 9 ) operation of all 16 demultiplexed channels, with a power penalty of 2.2 2.4 dB , highlighting the potential of these structures as a platform for ultracompact all-optical nonlinear processes.
