Abstract

We demonstrate bit error rate improvement, corroborated by eye diagram measurements, of a (10 MHz) amplitude distorted 10 Gbit/s data signal in silicon photonic crystal waveguides. This demonstration exploits a power clamping nonlinear transfer function, provided by slow light enhancement of nonlinear absorption in these waveguides. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
