“Although these devices are still under investigation, they will one day be used not only for the conversion between optical analog and digital signals but also for high-speed optical signal processing, such as the modulation format conversion that may be used in the future heterogeneous photonic networks. All-optical ADC and DAC may also be applicable to radar systems.”
