The first side includes at least one cylindrical input lens and the second side includes an array of output lenses. The at least one cylindrical input lens is configured to expand input light along a... Agent:
20120027418 - Equalizer for an optical transmission system: An equaliser (60) processes, in the electrical domain, a signal obtained from a path of an optical transmission system. The equaliser comprises N cascaded stages (where N≧1). At least one of the stages comprises a cascade of a linear equalisation element (61) and a non-linear equalisation element (62). The equaliser... Agent: Telefonaktiebolaget Lm Ericsson (publ)
20120027419 - Frame/symbol synchronization in coherent optical ofdm: One aspect provides an optical communication system. The system includes an optical-to-digital converter, a frequency estimator and a symbol synchronizer. The optical-to-digital converter is configured to receive an optical OFDM bit stream including an OFDM symbol bearing payload data and a symbol header preceding the OFDM payload data. The frequency... Agent:
20120027420 - Method and apparatus for generating optical duo binary signals with frequency chirp: This present disclosure provides an optical transmission method and system. The system includes a pre-coder for pre-coding an input signal into a first pre-coded signal, an encoder/separator coupled to the first pre-coded signal and arranged to encode the first and second pre-coded signals into a first encoded signal with 0... Agent: Futurewei Technologies Inc.
20120027421 - Four wave mixing suppression: Methods, systems and computer program products for countering the effects of four wave mixing are described. In one implementation, a controller can be used to shift an operating wavelength of an optical transmitter away from a zero-dispersion wavelength through which signals of the optical transmitter are transmitted. The controller can... Agent: Harmonic Inc.Previous industry: Photography
