Abstract

We present, for the first time to our knowledge, experimental results of the use of a 1-m-long Bi2O3-based nonlinear fiber (Bi-NLF) with a nonlinear parameter γ of 1100W1km1 within an all-fiber-based 160-Gbits optical time-division multiplexing (OTDM) data demultiplexer. Our demultiplexing switch basically uses the principle of the Kerr shutter, and its switching performance is further enhanced by the additional use of the wavelength blueshift of data pulses, which is induced by cross-phase modulation from the control pulse’s trailing edge. The OTDM demultiplexer, composed of the 1-m Bi-NLF, readily achieves error-free demultiplexing operation of all 16 channels.
