Abstract

We employ a delay interferometer to enhance the data rate of the semiconductor-optical-amplifier-based inverse-return-to-zero (IRZ) generation to 40Gbit/s and investigate the improved performance of 40-Gbit/s IRZ/10-Gbit/s DPSK orthogonal modulation using reshaping-assisted demultiplexer in optical-time-division-multiplexed systems.
