Abstract
We have developed a simulation model to investigate the demultiplexing of all-optical-time-division-multiplexed data, employing an optical time-division demultiplexer. Particular attention is paid to the cross-talk performance when selected parameters of the system are varied. The system used to demultiplex the data is the asymmetric semiconductor laser amplifier loop mirror (ASLALOM), which is capable of selecting high-speed optical pulses within a data train. The authors use a model of the ASLALOM that includes a time and space analysis of a traveling-wave semiconductor laser amplifier. Our investigation shows that this system produces cross talk that is dependent on the data rate, control pulse energy, and control pulse rate.
