TL;DR: High-speed long-distance communication based on chaos synchronization over a commercial fibre-optic channel is demonstrated, showing that information can be transmitted at high bit rates using deterministic chaos in a manner that is robust to perturbations and channel disturbances unavoidable under real-world conditions.
Abstract: Chaos is good, if you are looking to send encrypted information across a broadband optical network. The idea that the transmission of light-based signals embedded in chaos can provide privacy in data transmission has been demonstrated over short distances in the laboratory. Now it has been shown to work for real, across a commercial fibre-optic channel in the metropolitan area network of Athens, Greece. The results show that the technology is robust to perturbations and channel disturbances unavoidable under real-world conditions. Chaotic signals have been proposed as broadband information carriers with the potential of providing a high level of robustness and privacy in data transmission1,2. Laboratory demonstrations of chaos-based optical communications have already shown the potential of this technology3,4,5, but a field experiment using commercial optical networks has not been undertaken so far. Here we demonstrate high-speed long-distance communication based on chaos synchronization over a commercial fibre-optic channel. An optical carrier wave generated by a chaotic laser is used to encode a message for transmission over 120 km of optical fibre in the metropolitan area network of Athens, Greece. The message is decoded using an appropriate second laser which, by synchronizing with the chaotic carrier, allows for the separation of the carrier and the message. Transmission rates in the gigabit per second range are achieved, with corresponding bit-error rates below 10-7. The system uses matched pairs of semiconductor lasers as chaotic emitters and receivers, and off-the-shelf fibre-optic telecommunication components. Our results show that information can be transmitted at high bit rates using deterministic chaos in a manner that is robust to perturbations and channel disturbances unavoidable under real-world conditions.

TL;DR: In this paper, a novel wireless broadcast/multi-access channel for flexibly interconnecting a cluster of data terminals located within the same room is described, where the transmission medium is diffusively scattered infrared radiation at 950-nm wavelength.
Abstract: A novel wireless broadcast/multi-access channel is described for flexibly interconnecting a cluster of data terminals located within the same room. The transmission medium is diffusively scattered infrared radiation at 950-nm wavelength. Transmission is low-to-medium speed and the range up to 50 m. Theoretical analysis indicates that the time dispersion limits the transmission bandwidth of the system to 260 Mbit ċ m/s, but background noise produced by ambient daylight reduces the transmission speed below 1 Mbit/s. The transmission properties of the diffuse optical channel are analyzed, and experimental digital links for baseband PCM at 125 kbit/s and PSK 64 kbit/s are demonstrated.

TL;DR: In this paper, the carrier-envelope offset (CEO) phase was measured and stabilised with sub-femtosecond uncertainty in a mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser.
Abstract: The shortest pulses periodically emitted directly from a mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser are approaching the two-optical-cycle range. In this region, the phase of the optical carrier with respect to the pulse envelope becomes important in nonlinear optical processes such as high-harmonic generation. Because there are no locking mechanisms between envelope and carrier inside a laser, their relative phase offset experiences random fluctuations. Here, we propose several novel methods to measure and to stabilize this carrier-envelope offset (CEO) phase with sub-femtosecond uncertainty. The stabilization methods are an important prerequisite for attosecond pulse generation schemes. Short and highly periodic pulses of a two-cycle laser correspond to an extremely wide frequency comb of equally spaced lines, which can be used for absolute frequency measurements. Using the proposed phase-measurement methods, it will be possible to phase-coherently link any unknown optical frequency within the comb spectrum to a primary microwave standard. Experimental studies using a sub-6-fs Ti:sapphire laser suggesting the feasibility of carrier-envelope phase control are presented.
TL;DR: In this article, the effects of fiber chromatic dispersion in fiber-wireless systems incorporating external modulators were investigated and the achievable link distance can be increased by varying the chirp parameter of the modulator to give large negative chirps using a dual-electrode Mach-Zehnder modulator biased at quadrature.
Abstract: We demonstrate two techniques to reduce the effects of fiber chromatic dispersion in fiber-wireless systems incorporating external modulators. We theoretically and experimentally show that the achievable link distance can be increased by varying the chirp parameter of the modulator to give large negative chirp using a dual-electrode Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) biased at quadrature. In addition, we show that dispersion can be almost totally overcome by implementing a simple method using the dual-electrode MZM to generate an optical carrier with single sideband (SSB) modulation. We demonstrate the transmission of a 51.8-Mb/s pseudorandom bit sequence (PRBS) at 12 GHz over 80 km of standard single-mode fiber using the SSB generator and measure a bit-error-rate (BER) power penalty due to fiber dispersion of less than 0.5 dB for a BER equal to 10/sup -9/.

TL;DR: The development of the first practical ('black-box') all-optical regenerator capable of removing both phase and amplitude noise from binary phase-encoded optical communications signals is reported.
Abstract: Fibre-optic communications systems have traditionally carried data using binary (on-off) encoding of the light amplitude. However, next-generation systems will use both the amplitude and phase of the optical carrier to achieve higher spectral efficiencies and thus higher overall data capacities(1,2). Although this approach requires highly complex transmitters and receivers, the increased capacity and many further practical benefits that accrue from a full knowledge of the amplitude and phase of the optical field(3) more than outweigh this additional hardware complexity and can greatly simplify optical network design. However, use of the complex optical field gives rise to a new dominant limitation to system performance-nonlinear phase noise(4,5). Developing a device to remove this noise is therefore of great technical importance. Here, we report the development of the first practical ('black-box') all-optical regenerator capable of removing both phase and amplitude noise from binary phase-encoded optical communications signals.
