Abstract

We report on the design and fabrication of a monolithically integrated balanced photodetector module and its application in a single polarization 160 Gbit/s OTDM transmission experiment with RZ-DPSK modulation format. The 2.5 dB improvement in receiver sensitivity enabled transmission over a record fiber link of 410 km using exclusively EDF As.
