Abstract

We use the direct temporal domain approach to design spectrally periodic optical filters for pulse repetition rate multiplication (PRRM) with envelope shaping. In particular, we demonstrate a tunable lattice-form Mach–Zehnder interferometer using Silica-based planar lightwave circuit (PLC) for arbitrary 4-bit binary amplitude code generation at 40 GHz and to increase the repetition rate of a 10 GHz input pulse train to 20 GHz or 40 GHz. In addition to PRRM and envelope shaping, the device also has the capability of arbitrary phase coding.
