Abstract:

The equipment purchased under this DURIP grant is designed to generate high speed data for optical communications and network experiments. The ability to generate data using this type of instrument is essential to measure the performance of devices and systems and understand what the limitations are. This work resulted in 20 publications. which are listed at the end of this report. Four areas of research were positively impacted by the acquisition of this equipment i all optical label swapping, ii all-optical wavelength conversion, iii all-optical serial to parallel conversion and iv high-speed wavelength switching. These areas are critical to the future of military and commercial communications infrastructure and the results from this work have laid - fundamental groundwork that will shape future optical network technologies and architectures.
