A reconfigurable optical header recognition system for optical packet routing applications

By C. Tian, Z. Zhang, M. Ibsen, P. Petropoulos and D.J. Richardson


We demonstrate a reconfigurable all-optical packet processing system. The key device is a code-reconfigurable header decoder based on a fiber Bragg grating. The performance of the system is tested for different packet headers, and error-free operation is confirmed
