    Optical Networks Group, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, UCL, Torrington Place, London, UK
    Opt Express 19:B770-6. 2011
    ..We report a burst acquisition time of less than 200 ns...

    Optical Networks Group, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London UCL, Torrington Place, London WC1E 7JE, UK
    Opt Express 19:B581-6. 2011
    ..PDM-BPSK allowed transmission distances in excess of 14,040 km to be achieved, compared to 13,640 km for PS-QPSK. However, PS-QPSK offers a significant reduction in receiver complexity due to the lower symbol-rate...

    David J Ives
    Optical Networks Group, Dept of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London, Torrington Place, London, WC1E 7JE, UK
    Opt Express 19:B661-6. 2011
    ..The technique is verified experimentally and when combined with a single point calibration the OSNR of the input signal was estimated to within 0.5 dB...

    David S Millar
    Optical Networks Group, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London UCL, Torrington Place, London WC1E 7JE, United Kingdom
    Opt Express 19:9296-302. 2011
    ..The maximum reach of 13640 km for WDM PS-QPSK is, to the best of our knowledge, the longest distance reported for 40 Gb/s WDM transmission, over an uncompensated link, with standard fiber and amplification...

    José Manuel Delgado Mendinueta
    Optical Networks Group, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London, London, United Kingdom
    Opt Express 19:14060-6. 2011
    ..25 Gb/s is sufficient to reliably detect packets at both line-rates over a burst-to-burst dynamic range of 14,5 dB with a sensitivity of -18.5 dBm at 10 Gb/s...

    Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London UCL, London, UK
    Opt Express 19:B229-34. 2011
    ..Using the optimized settings, sensitivities of -30.94, -30.17, and -27.26 dBm with overloads of -9.3, -5, and >-5 dBm were demonstrated for backhaul transmission distances of 22, 40 and 62 km, respectively...
