Abstract

We propose novel ultrafast photonic interfaces for use in storage networking based on all-optical serial-to-parallel and photonic parallel-to-serial conversion. We confirm their operation with 40-Gbit/s 16-bit optical data using compact modules and a potential bandwidth of over 100 Gbit/s. We realize a photonic random access memory (RAM) by sandwiching a CMOS RAM with these two interfaces and achieve the storage and read-out of 40-Gbit/s 16-bit optical data. We also discuss the advantages of the interfaces and their possible applications to storage networking such as the real-time remote back-up of huge quantities of data, disaster recovery and video communication systems.
