Abstract.  Information transfer through single-mode optical fiber by means of quasidiscrete spectral supercontinuums in the 1300- to 1620-nm wavelength range has been demonstrated. Using 16 spectral lines in each supercontinuum at the repetition rate of 70 MHz allows for a 1.1-Gb/s information transfer rate to be achieved. It has been shown that the proposed information transfer method can achieve a 0.8-Tb/s information transfer rate using existing telecommunications equipment.
