We demonstrate a 56 GBd PAM-4 compact transmitter module integrating in InP a DFB laser and EAM modulator, which exhibits 50 GHz bandwidth, >13 dB extinction ratio and up to 1.5 mW output power. Successful amplifier free 2-km 112-Gb/s transmission is performed using low complexity 3 taps equalization. We also study the trade-off between receiver bandwidth, equalizer length and performance, showing that successfully signal recovery can be achieved with bandwidths as low as 18 GHz when increasing the equalizer length.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...
