640 Gbit/s RZ-to-NRZ format conversion based on optical phase filtering

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


We propose a novel approach for all optical RZ-to-NRZ conversion based on optical phase filtering. The proposed concept is experimentally validated through format conversion of a 640 Gbit/s coherent RZ signal to NRZ signal using a simple phase filter implemented by a commercial optical waveshaper.
