Transmission and modulation of 30-40 GHz pulses generated by a diode-driven, low-jitter, beat-signal to soliton train conversion source

D.J.Richardson, R.P.Chamberlin, L.Dong and D.N.Payne


We report on the performance of a low timing-jitter, diode-driven, Nd:YLF pumped 5ps, 30-40 GHz soliton source based on beat signal conversion in a dispersion decreasing fibre. We demonstrate for the first time data encoding at 40 Gbit/s and transmission of the pulse trains over 205 km.
