Abstract

We demonstrate a MicroPhotonic optical header-recognition architecture based on delaying the optical headers within an optical cavity and detecting them using a photoreceiver array. The MicroPhotonic architecture overcomes the issue of optical interference encountered in conventional single-detector header-recognition structures. A 4-bit MicroPhotonic header-recognition architecture is simulated and experimentally demonstrated at 200 Mb/s
