All-optical packet compression based on time-to-wavelength conversion

By P.J. Almeida, P. Petropoulos, B.C. Thomsen, M. Ibsen and D.J. Richardson


We experimentally demonstrate a novel optical packet compression scheme based on linearly chirping the packets followed by dispersive compression and multiwavelength conversion back onto a single wavelength. In particular, four-bit packets at 10 Gb/s were compressed into four-bit packets at 40 Gb/s. Error-free performance was achieved for the final compressed packet
