    Abstract

    Simultaneous RZ-OOK to NRZ-OOK and RZ-DPSK to NRZDPSK modulation format conversion in a single silicon microring resonator with free spectral range equal to twice the signal bit rate is experimentally demonstrated for the first time at 41.6 Gb/s. By utilizing an optimized custom-made microring resonator with high coupling coefficient followed by an optical bandpass filter with appropriate bandwidth, good conversion performances for both modulation formats are achieved according to the converted signals eye diagrams and bit-error-rate measurements.
