Abstract

All-optical demultiplexing has been shown with a full-duty-cycle 2.5-Gbit/s signal in a nonlinear fiber Sagnac interferometer. Complete switching of arbitrary pulse patterns in the data stream has been achieved by using two orthogonal polarization states for the switching and switched pulse trains. The polarization dispersion between the two fiber axes defines a window that allows for switching with timing errors as large as 350 ps.
