Abstract

A 200-gigachip/s multiple encoder/decoder in an arrayed waveguide configuration, which generates and recognizes simultaneously 16 optical labels in parallel, has been fabricated. The device has been experimentally characterized, and a 10-Gb/s 50-km optical packet switching (OPS) experiment has been successfully performed: Optical packets are switched to their own destinations using a single device with a processing rate of 13 gigapackets/s.
