Abstract

We propose an innovative approach to implementing multiple arithmetic functions of quaternary numbers using optical nonlinearities and differential quadrature phase-shift keying (DQPSK) signals. By adopting 100Gbit/s DQPSK signals (A, B) and exploiting nondegenerate four-wave mixing (FWM) for addition/subtraction and degenerate FWM for complement and doubling in a single highly nonlinear fiber, we demonstrate 50Gbaud/s simultaneous quaternary addition (A+B), dual-directional subtraction (AB, BA), complement (A, B), and doubling (2B). Power penalties less than 4 dB (addition), 3 dB (dual-directional subtraction), 2 dB (complement), and 3.1 dB (doubling) are observed at a bit-error rate of 109.
