Several methods have been proposed so far to optically multiply the repetition rate of pulsed laser sources by spectral filtering using uniform Bragg gratings or Fabry-Perot filters. In this communication, we show optical clock generation at 170 GHz using a multi-line tunable notch filter, created by thermally induced phase-shifts on a chirped fibre Bragg grating (CFBG), coupled to Quantum dash Fabry-Perot actively mode locked laser (QD-FP-MLLD) fabricated at III-V Lab. The CFBG is placed on a chromium line pattern and, when an appropriate current is applied, narrow transmission bands appear at desired frequencies. The QD-FP-MLLD was actively locked through an optically-injected signal, modulated at 42.5 GHz by a LiNbO3 modulator.

  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
