TITLE: On-chip All Optical Error Detection for Ultra-low Latency Communications
AUTHORS: Yvan Paquot1, Jochen Schroeder1, Mark D. Pelusi1, Benjamin J. Eggleton1
INSTITUTIONS: 1. CUDOS, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia.
ABSTRACT BODY:
Abstract (35 Word Limit): We propose and demonstrate the first photonic-chip based all-optical error detection. The scheme could provide a favourable solution for communication systems with ultra-low latency requirements. We present results for 40 Gb/s BPSK signals.

TITLE: A Tunable RF Photonic Notch Filter with Record 55 dB Suppression using Sub-1 dB On-Chip Brillouin Gain
AUTHORS: David Marpaung1, Blair Morrison1, Ravi Pant1, Duk-Yong Choi2, Steve Madden2, Barry Luther-Davies2, Benjamin J. Eggleton1
INSTITUTIONS: 1. CUDOS University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia.
2. CUDOS Australian National University, Canberra, ACT, Australia.
ABSTRACT BODY:
Abstract (35 Word Limit): We report an ultrahigh resolution tunable RF photonic notch filter with > 55 dB of suppression, achieved with less than 1 dB of SBS gain in a 6.5-cm chalcogenide photonic chip.

TITLE: A Chiral Beamsplitter Inspired by Butterfly Nanostructures
AUTHORS: Mark D. Turner1, 2, Matthias Saba3, Qiming Zhang1, Benjamin P. Cumming1, Gerd E. Schröder-Turk3, Min . Gu1
INSTITUTIONS: 1. Centre for Micro Photonics & CUDOS, Swinburne University of Technology, Hawthorn, VIC, Australia.
2. Applications Research Laboratory, IMRA America Inc., Fremont, CA, United States.
3. Theoretische Physik, Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Erlangen, Bavaria, Germany.
ABSTRACT: Here we present a chiral analog of the linearly polarizing beamsplitter [1]. This microscopic device was built from a biomimetic chiral photonic crystal and separates left and right-handed circularly polarized light at near-infrared wavelengths.

TITLE: Giant Optical Nonlinear Response of Graphene Oxide Films
AUTHORS: Xiaorui Zheng1, Baohua Jia1, Xi Chen1, Min Gu1
INSTITUTIONS: 1. Centre for Micro-Photonics and CUDOS, Swinburne University of Technology, Hawthorn, VIC, Australia.
ABSTRACT: Graphene oxide films with controlled thicknesses were developed using a self-assembly method. The film exhibited both a giant and switchable nonlinear absorption coefficient of 40000 cm/GW and a nonlinear refractive index of 8 cm2/GW.
