Abstract

The demonstration of an all-optical, ultra-high-speed, time-domain signal correlator based on spatial-spectral holographic (SSH) technology is described. The fully programmable signal correlator demonstration operates asynchronously and continuously on signals with up to 32 GHz of bandwidth and correlative filter length exceeding a time-bandwidth product of 104, for the equivalent of teraflop-scale processing. Experimental demonstrations are presented that show both digital and analog correlation capability using phase-shift keyed modulation formats to search plain text ASCII data sources for arbitrary phrases at continuous line rate throughputs up to 200 Gbps with minimal latency. These high-bandwidth demonstrations were enabled by improvements in the photonic supporting components and cryogenic SSH for RF and microwave signal processing methods. Potential application of the SSH real-time correlator for high-bandwidth analog or multi-level format signals is discussed.
