I’m new to Interconnect, I’ve been using it for a few weeks and there are some issues that I don’t quite understand, maybe you could help me.
-The first one, I don´t understand why some wavelength mismatches appear in the optical spectra when I use a phase shifter (see file: AM+180 and the output of the osa 3 in the figure with the same name). I’d like to cancel the carrier component creating a destructive interference, but with that frequency shift that is introduced, I’m not sure if it is going to work as expected. I’ve also seen the unexpected wavelength shift when using PM modulation (see file: AM+PM and the output of the osa 3 in the figure with the same name). To simulate a difference of optical paths of 180 degrees, what is better to use a phase shifter or an optical delay?AM 180.icp (1.4 MB)
AM PM.icp (3.9 MB)
Thank you very much in advance,
