Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate all-optical 271 pseudorandom bit sequence data multiplexing using wavelength conversion, interchannel chromatic dispersion, and intrachannel dispersion compensation. Bit-rate tuning capability is demonstrated with 10–20 and 2040Gbitss multiplexing, achieving a bit-error rate <109 for both rates.
