Abstract

New insight to the feasibility of all-optical ultra speed switching up to 200 Gb/s. The technique will reduce the dependency and bottleneck on the electronic-to-optical-to-electronic conversion. Current conversion speed is up to 40 Gb/s in laboratories. The novel clock extraction technique proposed shows the potential of an all-optical switch. The research results are directly relevant to the access technology where optical fibre and RF is competing to be the solution. The growing demands of bandwidth will exceed RF capability while the optical fibre will be the optimum solution. A PhD project (Le-Minh) funded by the University Studentship, completed in 2007.
