Abstract

We propose a simple OFDM receiver allowing for the use of standard WDM receivers to receive spectrally advanced OFDM signals. We propose to spectrally magnify the optical-OFDM super-channels using a spectral telescope consisting of two time-lenses, which enables reduced inter-carrier-interference in subcarrier detection by simple band-pass filtering. A demonstration on an emulated 100 Gbit/s DPSK optical-OFDM channel shows improved sensitivities after 4-times spectral magnification.

Motivation: Replace optical DFT and active gates for each subcarrier with a single OFDM-to-DWDM-like converter followed by a standard passive WDM receiver, e.g. an arrayed waveguide grating (AWG).

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Principle of OFDM spectral magnification using two time-lenses, followed by optical band-pass filtering for subcarrier detection. In this figure, a magnification of 2 is sketched.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Simulations of the principle of OFDM spectral magnification using two time-lenses. Top: Equivalent spatial lens telescope system compared to temporal lens system consisting of two phase modulators and two dispersive elements, yielding spectral magnification. Bottom graphs: Spectral and temporal (lowest) shapes at various points through the system as obtained by simulations. Left: Original OFDM signal input to the system. Middle: After the first time lens, corresponding to the focal plane, essentially yielding a parallel-to-serial conversion, i.e. short serial pulses. Right: After the second time lens, where the OFDM spectrum is now restored, but with a 4 times magnification. The temporal symbols are equally narrower.

Simulation results of Gaussian bandpass filtering on the original and magnified OFDM signal. Top: Demodulated eye diagram of 10 Gbit/s DPSK subcarrier filtered with a 15 GHz wide Gaussian filter from an OFDM super-channel with spectral magnification x4 using time-lenses. Bottom: 8 GHz Gaussian bandpass filtering on the original OFDM signal yielding severe eye closure due to ICI and ISI.

Optical spectrum of the OFDM signal, (a) before, and (b) after the spectral magnification (x4). The even and odd subcarriers are shown for clarity.

Fig. 8
Fig. 8

BER performance of the filtered 10 Gbit/s DPSK subcarriers. (a) B2B case. (b) After 4x spectral magnification. Received power is measured after the sub-carrier filtering, just before the pre-amplified receiver, see Fig. 5.

Fig. 9
Fig. 9

BER power sensitivities of all subcarriers b2b and magnified (left) and corresponding spectrum (right), shown as odd/even carriers separately to enable visibility of individual channels. The two impaired carriers are clearly identified as the two outermost carriers, which are suffering from some spectral distortion and broadening of their neighbour carriers, resulting in more inter-carrier crosstalk.
