Abstract

In this paper, we propose and demonstrate a new MicroPhotonic structure for optical packet header recognition based on the integration of an optical cavity, optical components and a photoreceiver array. The structure is inherently immune to optical interference thereby routing an optical header within optical cavities to different photoreceiver elements to generate the autocorrelation function, and hence the recognition, of the header using simple microelectronic circuits. The proof-of-concept is simulated and experimentally demonstrated.
