A 10-Gb/s burst-mode optical packet receiver module was fabricated. Its sensitivity was -24.8 dBm. Its sensitivity penalty due to packet-arrival timing jitter was less than 1.5 dB in arbitrary relative phase, and its total sensitivity penalty due to power fluctuation and packet-arrival timing jitter was less than 2.9 dB when the magnitude of packet-by-packet power fluctuation was 9 dB. We experimentally confirmed that our burst-mode optical packet receiver did not cause a penalty for wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) optical switching using the wavelength channel selector module.
