Abstract

The concept of applying ultrafast optical time division multiplexing (TDM) techniques to enable the generation and detection of high-bandwidth analog waveform packets are introduced. Initial experiments with the analog optical TDM system shows that these techniques can provide great deal of control on the waveform profile. In addition, by appending the analog waveform to a high-speed digital header, more complex system functions, such as self-routing of analog waveforms throughout an interconnection network, are made possible.
