I am simulating the 4 user transmitter and receiver network but i am not getting the proper eye pattern at 2Gbits/s so i need the help. i am not getting the problem. I am attaching the layout.

      Hi Arpita,

      I managed to increase the eye opening a bit by using ideal MUX instead of power combiner. In your OptiSystem version, the power combiner output power is the average of the input power, but in the ideal MUX the input powers are all added. In version 14, though, the function of power combiners has been modified.

      I have applied the IDEAL Mux but i did not get the any improvement please see the layout and solve my problem

        I managed to make a rather small improvement in terms of Q-factor (which corresponds to eye opening), increasing from about 3.3 to 4.1. Other than this, I decreased laser linewidth to 200kHz (which is commercially available) and also increased laser power, but none made any significant difference.

      hi arpita

      can please post ur screen shot of .osd file, i dont have acess to optisystem this time.

      with regards

      i am attaching the image of design and i am not getting the output proper as explained in the optiwave software design example.

        Hi Arpita,

        I only suggested using “ideal MUX” instead of power combiner, but I see power splitter has also been replaced. Even though this does not make any serious problem, I suggest you replace it with power splitter if you like, since power splitter does not have the problem that is there in combiner in OS13.

        Regards

      hi arpita

      i have gone through your .osd degn pic.what i saw in your attached pic is that you are using the mux and demux……

      1.but we use mux and demux while we are transmitting at several wavelengths.and you are using only one wavelength.hence in my view your .osd design is logically wrong. you are using time divison for single wavelenth which is optical timing division multiplexing(OTDM).

      2. i think you are trying to form hybrid network i.e time divison wavelength multiplexing.

      with regards

        Hi Aasif,

        The ideal MUX that I suggested to be used acts the same as a power combiner, so the use of it causes no problem and on the contrary, makes the design perform better since the output power is not the average of the input signals (unlike power combiner component in OS13), but it is the sum of them. So it would be OK to use it in such configuration.

        Regards

      you go through these .
      1.http://optiwave.com/resources/applications-resources/optical-system-time-division-multiplexing-tdm/

      2.http://optiwave.com/resources/applications-resources/optical-system-optical-time-domain-multiplexing-otdm-design/


      if you replace ideal mux by power combiner and demux by power splitter , you will get very good results.

      do this and and let me know about about your results..

      with regards

        Other than what I suggested about use of MUX, I believe the system Arpita has implemented is not a hybrid system. The splitter used after the laser is just to distribute input optical power. If not, could you explain how the system is hybrid. I hope Arpita does not get confused by the suggestions.

      hi alistu
      please how had you suggested the use of mux with single wavelength. this is bizarre.

        I have made the explanation in my first comment in this topic page. Aside from that, please refer to the following forum page where I have raised a question regarding their performance, whose answer would hopefully clear your doubts:

      mux is for several wavelengths. this is getting worse .

      please explain the use of mux and demux for single wavelength, instead of power combiner and splitter

        I only suggested using MUX, ant not DEMUX. But even using DEMUX does not worsen the performance of the system! it acts like a fork and copies the input signal to all the output ports, so that is why I suggested Arpita to replace the MUX to have a more practical implementation. So no degeneration should occur.

      i have also performed the design with combiner but i did not get the result

        Please use an Ideal MUX at transmitter and use a power splitter at the receiver as you were formerly using. The modifications within your system should be made in other components. If you have any questions about the ideal MUX, please feel free to ask (to understand exactly why I suggested it).

      hi arpita
      have you replaced demux by power splitter.

      Hello arpita Hi asif,
      people i agree with asif. You can’t use Mux as a power combiner here. Logic is fine you can split power of input signal and combine it. But i would suggest power combiner rather than mux. mux is primarily used for time division multiplexing. You would get only one signal at each time slot. If you wish to recombine the power you must use power combiner.
      As i can see from the screenshot she is trying to split input power and MULTIPLEX it rather than combining it.

        Hi Aabid,

        As you can see from the answer given by Philip Weetman, the Optiwave engineer, the new power combiner acts EXACTLY like the ideal MUX component. However, in older OptiSystem versions the power combiner was based on a model that Philip stated was not correct. This is his answer:

      Arpita could you attach your osd file. ??
      we can try something respectively.

        Hi Aabid,

        The .osd file is already available on this forum page. You can find it attached to Arpita’s main post. You only need to replace the power combiner by an ideal MUX, as I have been explaining (since Arpita is using version 13 and so on).
