Abstract

A. D. Simard, B. Filion, D. Patel, D. Plant, S. LaRochelleWe experimentally demonstrate PAM-8 generation from binary electrical signals driving a silicon multi-electrode Mach-Zehnder modulator acting as an optical digital-to-analog converter. Measured BER in back-to-back configuration is used to evaluate signal quality. We demonstrate 38 GBd PAM-8 ... [Opt. Express 24, 19467-19472 (2016)]
