Abstract

This paper reports the first optical transmitter implementations operating at a serial bit rate of 107 Gb/s using solely electronic time-division multiplexing. Two methods to overcome modulator bandwidth limitations are proposed and demonstrated: low-bandwidth optical duobinary modulation and integrated optical equalization. Both transmitters are characterized in terms of bit error ratio and chromatic dispersion tolerance.
