IS15 – Inverse Hyperbolic-Tangent Pre-distortion for OOFDM Systems

Alzoubi S., Shehata M.

We propose an inverse hyperbolic-tangent-based digital pre-distorter that can suppress the Mach-Zehnder modulator-induced harmonic distortions by about 13 dB for single-tone signals, while maintaining the peak-to-average power ratio in optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexed signals.

IS02 – Exploring modern alternatives to the Whittaker-Shannon-Nyquist sampling theorem in THz Spectroscopy

Andersen C. D., Noura J. A. S., Mølvig B. H., Garcia O. G., Lange S. J.

We present simulations for a THz cross-correlation spectroscopy (THz-CCS) optical system. The aim is using compressed sensing (CS) to reconstruct the THz signal from a random under sampling of the signal and potentially replacing a delay stage unit of the THz-CCS system to increase robustness and cost-effectiveness of the optical system. We present results from […]

IS14 – Tunable optical mode converter based on SOI asymmetric channel waveguides

Younis B. M., Esamil M. S. M., Hameed M. F. O., Obayya S. S. A.

An optical mode converter based on asymmetric dual channel waveguides is reported and analyzed. The first channel is infiltrated with nematic liquid crystal (NLC) material while the second one has BK7 glass core. The first higher order mode of the NLC core is coupled to the fundamental mode of the neighboring core with high coupling […]

IS04 – All-optical AND Logic Gate Based on Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers for Implementing Deep Recurrent Neural Networks

Alam B., Ceschini A., Rosato A., Panella M., Asquini R.

The development of optical logic gates is a key factor for enabling next generation of computations in the context of Deep Learning and Quantum Computing. In this work, we introduce a scheme for the implementation of an all-optical AND logic gate, which makes use of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA) in cross-phase modulation configuration combined with […]

IS10 – Modelling and Characterisation of Silicon Waveguides in Photonic Integrated Circuits

Ljubotina M., Topič M., Krč J.

Modelling and characterization of basic waveguiding structures in integrated photonics is important due to the large variety of established and emerging technologies used for fabrication. In this contribution we present a modelling and characterization approach for integrated silicon waveguides. We provide waveguide characteristics calculated from eigenmode simulation and optical measurement results.

IS01 – Network Authentication with Synchronized Chaotic Lasers

Lombardi L., Annovazzi-Lodi V., Aromataris G.

We numerically study a hardware method for network authentication, where a pair of matched (twins) chaotic lasers generate the same chaos when they synchronize, being subject to the same optical injection from a third chaotic laser. One of the lasers is in the secure environment, the other in the unsecure environment, and authorization is granted […]

IS13 – Design and Performance Analysis of All Optical Half Adder based on Carrier Reservoir SOA -Mach Zehnder Interferometer (MZI) Configuration

Agarwal V., Pareek P., Singh L., Chaurasia V.

In this manuscript, Carrier reservoir SOA (CR-SOA) based half adder is proposed and simulated at 100 Gb/s. CR-SOA has fast carrier recovery, due to presence carrier reservoir which enables its use at higher data rates on the other hand conventional SOA suffers from slow carrier recovery which leads to unequal amplification of pulses. The obtained […]

IS12 – A compact Kerr effect based Plasmonic Logic Device for Nanotechnology Applications

Singh L., Pareek P., Dixit A., Agarwal V.

This work utilizes the vital property of Kerr effect of altering the phase of optical signal to numerically investigate the plasmonic XOR/XNOR logic device for nanotechnology applications. Extinction ratio (ER) and insertion loss (IL) of basic switching element (Mach-Zehnder interferometer) is evaluated and plotted as a function of length of interferometric arms. The obtained result […]

IS11 – Numerical Investigation of the Performance of OAM-Mode Shifting Recirculating Delay Loop Under the Effect of Mode Shifter Displacement

Almaiman A.

We investigate the effect of OAM mode shifter displacement on the performance of the OAM-mode shifting recirculating delay loop by simulating the beam propagation using Kirchhoff-Fresnel diffraction. Simulation results indicate that 20 delayed replicas may be obtained with >10 dB signal-to-crosstalk ratio (SCR) if alignment is perfect and ℓshift=+1

IS08 – Flat-band 8-Channel Optical MUX/DeMUX for Long Reach 400GbE Applications

Jeong S.-H.

We propose novel optical demultiplexer scheme for LR-8 applications, and theoretically verify flatband spectral response with the discrete 8-channel wavelengths. By the additional band rejection filter, non-continuous wavelength filtering response was achieved with spectral flatness and low crosstalk of < -15dB within an entire LR-8 targeted spectral range.

IS05 – Thermal crosstalk mitigation in a dual-drive Mach-Zehnder Modulator

De S., Das R., Singh K., Mandalawi Y., Kleine-Ostmann T., Schneider T.

Dual-drive, PIN-diode based Mach-Zehnder modulators are pivotal for power-efficient and cost-effective CMOS compatible optical transceivers with small footprints. However, the basic chip materials have substantial thermal conductance resulting in thermal crosstalk, which eventually deteriorates the modulator performance in terms of bandwidth and data transmission capabilities. In this work, we simulate and analyze the influence of […]
