Abstract

We demonstrate a tunable optical tapped delay line that can simultaneously and independently operate on multiple wavelength-division multiplexed (WDM) data signals. The system utilizes the wavelength-dependent speed of light, together with nonlinear wavelength conversion stages. A phase-preserving scheme enables coherent addition of the weighted taps. We reconfigured the system to perform separate simultaneous correlation (data pattern recognition), equalization, and modulation format conversion on four and eight WDM binary/quadrate phase-shift keyed channels at 26 and 20 Gbaud, respectively. The aggregate throughput of 416Gb/s is achieved.
