This paper investigates the use of a Two-Photon Absorption photodetector for high speed processing of ultrashort optical pulses in advanced photonic communication systems. Specifically the paper describes how the Two-Photon Absorption photodetector maybe employed for chromatic dispersion monitoring in high-speed, wavelength division multiplexed networks, and also for reducing multiple access interference noise in an optical code division multiplexed system.
Keywords:dispersion monitoring, wavelength division multiplexing, two-photon absorption, microcavity, optical pulse processing, optical communications, code division multiplexing.
