Abstract
A novel 4 × 4 multimode interference couplers based phase-shifted photonic quantization scheme using multiwavelength mode locked pulse lasers as sampling source for all-optical analog-to-digital converter is proposed. Numerical analysis indicates that 8-bit quantization resolution operating at 40 GHz bandwidth could be achieved with an incident average optical power of 1.932 mW to each photodiode. The whole scheme can be integrated on a InP-based chip.
