Paper Abstract

In this paper we will begin by presenting basic background material concerning the propagation of pulses through optical fibers, and current transmission schemes for optical fiber communication networks. We will then propose a time-frequency network design for high bandwidth fiber optic communications. We will discuss the crucial links in the system, which are: (1) an optical temporal Fourier transform which enables the optical computation of signal correlations, (2) the design of the input waveforms in order to avoid the harmful effects of Brillouin scattering and phase noise, and (3) the use of time frequency bases to lower the requirements on electronic modulators and detectors in high bandwidth communications.
