PMD Tolerance Testing of Optical Interfaces
Monday, January 18, 2010

Improving the tolerance to polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is considered to be one of the major prerequisites for the success of modern high bit rate optical communication systems. Various approaches such as optical compensation, electrical mitigation, multi-level modulation formats promise to increase the PMD tolerance of optical systems, whereas the question of how to experimentally characterize these solutions needs to be answered before commercial deployment.

Optical Vector Network Analyzer for Single Scan Measurements of Loss, Group Delay and Polarization
The Jones matrix (JM) or linear transfer function (TF) of a fiber-coupled component, when measured as a function of frequency, contains all of the information required to predict final component performance. Luna Technologies describes a novel interferometric technique for single-scan, high resolution spectral measurements of the TF of an optical component and demonstrates mathematically how the TF is obtained from this measurement apparatus.

Metrology of Advanced Optical Modulation Formats
The fundamental methods of encoding digital information onto an optical carrier are identical to the methods that have been developed and are widely used in the RF and wireless world. The only difference between the optical and the radio transmission is the frequency of the carrier. In both cases, the channel bandwidth is just a small fraction of the carrier frequency; however, that small fraction at the optical frequencies can reach bandwidth of tens of GHz.

Hollow Silica Waveguides for Mid-Infrared Power Transmission and Spectroscopy
Applications in the Mid-Infrared often require a flexible conduit for transmitting light from source to destination. Hollow Silica Waveguides with an internal Ag/AgI dielectric reflective layer optimized for maximum transmission between 2.5µm and 15µm have been used successfully for applications such as Erbium YAG and CO2 laser power transmission for industrial and medical applications. In addition the waveguides are used as long path flow cells for IR spectroscopy. In the following paper,...
