A novel, purely optical technique for demultiplexing high speed time-division multiplexed data is demonstrated. The technique uses the SLALOM (semiconductor laser amplifier in a loop mirror) The data rate is not limited by the gain recovery time of the semiconductor laser amplifier. The same technique can also be used for multiplexing.
