Accurate photonic analog-to-digital conversion
2011 XXXth URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium
Photonic analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are attracting significant interest due to promise of overcoming the problem of aperture jitter and improving ADC performance level by orders of magnitude. This work examines several critical factors which define the accuracy of an optically-sampled wavelength-demultiplexed ADC built on a silicon chip using silicon photonic technology. These factors are the optical power-dependent shot noise, optical power-dependent nonlinearities due to two-photondoi:10.1109/ursigass.2011.6050626 fatcat:zw3qba5ibvbjzcmx5rs6tkqkaa
