Abstract

An all-optical 2-to-4 level encoder based on cross polarization modulation in a semiconductor optical amplifier utilized to develop a 2 input digital multiplexer is presented. The most important feature of this device is the potential it has to improve the use of the available channel bandwidth on communications systems on an all-optical environment.
