    Abstract

    In this paper we propose a new optical routing technique based on amplitude spectral encoding of low-cost broadband sources such as Light-Emitting-Diodes (LEDs). The proposed system uses a standard nondispersive lens-grating apparatus, and simple direct-detection receivers. Suitable codes that can allow complete orthogonality between the users are given. Practical considerations are discussed. Application to ATM switching using optical interconnect is studied, in terms of switch capacity. Performance calculations are performed. It is shown that a switch throughput of 840 Gbit/s and 720 Gbit/s can be obtained respectively for Pe = 10-7 and Pe = 10-9.
