Experimental implementation of an all-optical interferometric drop, add, and extract multiplexer for superchannels
Fabbri, Simon J.; Sygletos, Stylianos; Perentos, Andreas; Pincemin, Erwan; Sugden, Kate; Ellis, Andrew D.;
We present the experimental implementation of an all-optical ROADM scheme for routing of an individual subchannel within an all-optical OFDM superchannel. The different functions required of optical node were demonstrated using interferometric technique with the extract... View more
