A communication method employing ultrashort pulses with parallel-to-serial and serial-to-parallel converters is analyzed in terms of the number of bits that can be encoded in a packet burst, the exact temporal profile of the packet and the system capacity. The duality between the temporal and spatial frequencies is utilized to convert information from pulsed optical signals to continuous wave (CW) and vice versa. The interference of co-propagating pulses are recorded on a hologram and read out by diffraction, from time-to-space conversion. The interference of spatial information is read out in time, for space-to-time conversion. More bit pulses can be compressed into a single packet with short duration pulses.
