Selective area growth (SAG) technology has been added to an established InP monolithic integration platform to fabricate arrays of multi-wavelength distributed feedback (DFB) lasers. The local epitaxy growth rate is controlled by the SiO2 mask width, and different quantum well (QW) thicknesses can be obtained in one run. The laser wavelengths span from 1447 nm to 1602 nm. The DFB lasers may include amplifying sections at the front and/or rear side. Output power up to 18 mW is achieved. This technology opens up possibilities to integrate various passive and active components such as lasers, modulators, detectors with different operating wavelengths monolithically on one wafer with less regrowth steps and reduced fabrication complexity.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
