Processing ultrafast optical signals in broadband telecom systems by means of cascaded quadratic nonlinearities

By Katia Gallo, Jerry Prawiharjo, Francesca Parmigiani, Paulo Almeida, Periklis Petropoulos and David J. Richardson


Quadratic optical nonlinearities offer several attractive features for the implementation of ultra-fast, low-noise and transparent telecom devices. Technological progress has dramatically increased their efficiency, driving a steady move towards practical applications. In this talk we shall discuss the use of cascaded quadratic interactions in LiNbO3 integrated devices for pulse diagnostics, format conversion and signal regeneration in ultra-fast multi-wavelength telecom systems
