Abstract:

Our research is focused on theoretical investigations of advanced optical fiber communication systems and can be grouped into three broad areas WDM networks, coherent analog links, and optical fiber nonlinearities. In the area of WDM networks, we proposed and investigated a novel WDM network architecture STARNET, a novel combined phaseamplitude modulation format, and a high-speed optics-to-computer interface for STARNET. In the area of coherent analog links, we investigated angle and amplitude modulated systems for linewidth-insensitive analog applications and direct-frequency-modulated subcarrier-multiplexed systems. In the area of fiber nonlinearities, we investigated four-wave mixing, thermally induced parasitic phase modulation, and a new type of soliton.
