The modulation bandwidth of three-channel buried crescent (TCBC) lasers was improved by reducing the ohmic contact resistance by adding a quaternary contact layer for the P-contact of the device. The ohmic resistance was reduced to 6-9 ohms with capacitance of 1.5-3 pF and inductance of 1.5-2 nH. The small signal 3 dB modulation frequency was increased to 7.2 GHz at 2.5 Ith and is still limited by the parasitic impedances of the device. Large signal digital modulation of the laser was successfully achieved at 8 Gbits/sec which is the highest frequency for direct digital modulation yet reported.

  • 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 ...
