Optical transmission methods in information technics


Dispersive Q-switching is a new method of optical switching at high bit rates by semiconductor lasers. It was proposed and firstly applied to optical signal processing by Heinrich-Hertz-Institut (HHI) Berlin. Theoretical modeling at Humboldt University of Berlin (HU) yielded a basic understanding of the underlying effects. The present common work of HHI and HU uses the modeling to develop the device design for different optical functionalities. The design proposals will be verified experimentally using devices manufactured at HHI within the existing technology.
