Abstract

A stable 10GHz pedestal-free short pulse generation scheme consisting of cascaded commercial LiNbO3 modulators has been proposed and successfully demonstrated experimentally. Fiber-based pulse compression and reshaping stages have been utilized to obtain a 1.38ps optical pulse train with very little pedestal and 132fs timing jitter. Excellent performance of multiplexing from 10  Gbits/s to 160Gbits/s using this method indicates good potential for application in ultrahigh-speed optical time-division-multiplexing systems.
