Abstract
A principle-of-concept demonstration about the effect of filter parameters on the output performance of a highly nonlinear fiber-based all optical thresholding technique (OTT) is proposed. The center wavelength, bandwidth, and rejection parameters of an optical bandpass filter (OBPF) used in fiber-based OTT are discussed. Carefully adjusting each parameter of the OBPF allows a steeper transforming characteristic of optical thresholding, and a fourth-order polynomial power transfer function is achieved, which is the steepest thresholding curve ever reported. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of fiber-based OTT focusing on OBPF parameters, which makes the thresholder more flexible and allows customization of thresholding performance to meet requirements in various systems.
