Demonstration of coherent stealthy and encrypted transmission for data center interconnection Academic Article uri icon


  • We show in an experiment a covert transmission of QPSK and 64-QAM over up to 100km of SSMF, digitally encrypted with spectral phase mask, buried under ASE noise with negative −15 dB/0.1nm OSNR. We record a post-FEC error free BER for a stealthy channel, at 16 Gbps on a single polarization.
