    Abstract

    The optical information processing based on time-to-space conversion has been intensely studied for about ten years by many researchers. Recently, the use of this technology in optical communication systems has become attractive because of the increase of modulation bit rate and the development of a high-performance arrayed-waveguide grating. In this report, the applications of this technology to the optical communication systems, including optical code division multiplexing and dispersion compensation of transmission optical fiber are discussed with our research results.
