We demonstrate high-speed (1 Gbit/s) dual-wavelength demultiplexing and detection in a monolithic linear array of superlattice p-i-n photodetectors in a waveguide configuration. A crosstalk attenuation of 28 dB was achieved between two digital transmission channels with an interchannel wavelength spacing of 30 nm. The device performance is a result of an enhanced electroabsorption due to the quantum-confined Stark effect in the superlattice p-i-n diodes.

    Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signals suffer from the problem of large peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) which complicates the design of the analog front-end of the system. Companding is a well-known PAPR reduction technique that reduces the PAPR by transforming the signal...
