  • Title: Recent Advances in Photonic Analog Signal Operators
  • Abstract: All-optical implementations of signal processing have attracted a great deal of attention due to the unique potential of this approach to overcome the bandwidth and speed bottleneck of electronic devices. Many all-optical signal processing techniques, offering processing bandwidths up to several THz, have been proposed and successfully employed in a wide range of areas, such as ultrafast telecommunications, optical computing, microwave photonics and bio-photonics etc. To build up an all-optical signal-processing and computing platform with complex functionality, a promising solution is to emulate the developments in the electronic domain using photonic technologies. For this purpose, photonics counterparts of fundamental components that form basic building blocks in electronic circuits need to be designed and realized. This is a key step toward the practical realization of all-optical information processing and computing circuits. Recently, some fundamental signal operators, such as all-optical temporal differentiators and integrators, and real-time Fourier and Hilbert transformers, have been experimentally demonstrated by employing fiber- and integrated-optic platforms. In this talk, recent advances on photonic analog signal processing will be introduced and reviewed. These works represent an important step towards the realization of efficient optical signal-processing circuits capable of overcoming the limitation in integration time window, bandwidth and power consumption imposed by electronics.
