mm,50 mm) and (90 mm,50 mm). There is an eight-unit cell separation between the two ports. In this board, the truncation of the patch corner reduces the patch capacitance. Considering the truncated area, the patch capacitance is modified to We propose a simple and compact all-optical on-off switch working at 10 Gb/s. The operation of the switch is based on four-wave mixing in only 1.9 m of bismuth-based highly nonlinear fiber. The proposed switch has a fast response time, high ON/OFF switching

Two types of GI-MMFs were used to make this kind of filters, and their spectra and polarization properties were experimentally investigated. ABSTRACT: We propose an experimental realization of flat-top filters by fabricating fiber Bragg gratings in graded-index multimode fibers
