Photonic Signal Processing for Optical Communications Receivers
Dr. Antonio Mendez
Pulse position modulation is a power efficient data communication scheme, but modulation/demodulation is difficult to implement at high data rates or throughputs. Mendez R&D Associates addresses this problem by means of photonic signal processing, including time-to-space mapping (which produces a virtual focal plane array). This talk describes the modulation/demodulation strategy and means to translate the virtual focal plane array into an output data stream.
