In this paper we report the first demonstration of all-optical time demultiplexing at 250 Gb/s with self-clocking using polarization multiplexing of the clock and data. To achieve such high speed, an ultra high-speed device known as the Terahertz Optical Asymmetric Demultiplexer (TOAD) is used. We also demonstrate self-clocked address recognition and routing control of a photonic switch at 250 Gb/s. The bit-error rate at the switch output was measured to be less than 10-9.
