Abstract

We demonstrate all-optical demultiplexing of a high-bandwidth, time-division multiplexed 160Gbit/s signal to 10Gbit/s channels, exploiting slow light enhanced four-wave mixing in a dispersion engineered, 96μm long planar photonic crystal waveguide. We report error-free (bit error rate<109) operation of all 16 demultiplexed channels, with a power penalty of 2.22.4dB, highlighting the potential of these structures as a platform for ultracompact all-optical nonlinear processes.
