    This paper presents experimental results of an asymmetric, effectively nonreciprocal fiber-optic coupler fabricated from unequal core diameters multimode fibers. It is shown that the nonreciprocity is due to modal dependent coupling. View full abstract»

    A new branching/combining optical circuit structure using high-silica channel waveguides was proposed to reduce radiation loss where branching occurs. In this structure, an additional low-refractive-index layer was formed at the junction surface between the main and branching channels. The loss in a conventional circuit could be successfully reduced by over 0.4 dB in the through channel and 0.1 dB... View full abstract»

    A Gram-Charlier series method has previously been applied to the calculation of the conditional probability of error, for a fixed data sequence, in the presence of intersymbol interference, detector multiplication noise, shot noise, and thermal noise. The probability of error is obtained by averaging the conditional probability of error over all possible data sequences. In this paper it is shown h... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The JOURNAL OF LIGHTWAVE TECHNOLOGY is comprised of original contributions, both regular papers and letters, covering work in all aspects of optical guided-wave science, technology, and engineering. Manuscripts are solicited which report original theoretical and/or experimental results which advance the technological base of guided-wave technology. Tutorial and review papers are by invitation only. Topics of interest include the following: fiber and cable technologies, active and passive guided-wave componentry (light sources, detectors, repeaters, switches, fiber sensors, etc.); integrated optics and optoelectronics; and systems, subsystems, new applications and unique field trials. System oriented manuscripts should be concerned with systems which perform a function not previously available, out-perform previously established systems, or represent enhancements in the state of the art in general.
