Final Report - SYNQPSK (Components for synchronous optical quadrature phase shift keying transmission)

Project ID: 004631
Funded under: FP6-IST


This is the final activity report of the 'Key components for synchronous optical quadrature phase shift keying transmission' (Synqpsk) project. Funded by the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, Synqpsk aimed to combine synchronous quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) transmission with return-to-zero (RZ) coding and polarization division multiplex. This provided an excellent modulation format for metropolitan areas and long distance fibre communication when compared to standard intensity modulation.

This report provides an overview of the work carried out by project partners in Germany, France and Israel to develop all the necessary components which are not readily found on the market, and validate them at a symbol rate of 10 Gsymbols/s and a bit rate of 40 Gbit/s.
