Title
(EN) OPTICAL N-LEVEL QUADRATURE AMPLITUDE MODULATION (NQAM) GENERATION BASED ON PHASE MODULATOR
(FR) GÉNÉRATION D'UNE MODULATION D'AMPLITUDE EN QUADRATURE DE N NIVEAUX (NQAM) OPTIQUE BASÉE SUR UN MODULATEUR DE PHASE
Abstract
(EN)
A technique for tuning a silicon photonics (SiP) based nested (parent/child) Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM). The technique includes a sequence of applying dither tones on individual arms of the child MZMs (4a, 4b), observing changes in the output of the MZM, and adjusting the MZM until reaching the null points for the child MZMs (4a, 4b) and the quad point for the parent MZM (4c).
(FR)
L'invention concerne une technique de réglage d'un modulateur Mach-Zehnder (MZM) imbriqué (parent / enfant) basé sur la photonique sur silicium (SiP). La technique comprend, de manière séquentielle, l'application de signaux d'ajout de bruit à des bras individuels des MZM enfants (4a,4b), l'observation de changements dans le signal de sortie du MZM, et l'ajustement du MZM jusqu'à ce que les points nuls soient atteints pour les MZM enfants (4a,4b) et le point de quadrature pour le MZM parent (4c).
