The process of all-optical packet demultiplexing using a multi-wavelength mutual injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser diode (FP-LD) was demonstrated. Optical networks utilizing fast packet switching are expected to provide the required capacities and flexibility in next generation high speed networks. The process was carried out by simultaneously injecting three different wavelength signals, namely, a data signal, a control signal and a cw stabilizer signal into a FP-LD with a double-channel planar-buried InGaAsP heterostructure. The results showed error-free packet demultiplexing of a 10 Gd/s signal with an extinction ratio of 16.9 dB.
