Abstract

We demonstrate fundamental functions for ultrafast optical routing by using an elemental part of an ultrafast optical technique for conversion of time to two-dimensional space. A preliminary experimental result shows that recognition of header signals can be achieved at a rate of more than 600 Gbytes/s.
