The first demonstration of all-optical demultiplexing of TDM data at 250Gbit/s is reported. The demultiplexer, called a 'TOAD', is compact and requires sub-picojoule switching energy. Crosstalk measurements of pseudorandom data in adjacent, 4ps-width time slots, exhibit a BER of less than 10-9, with strong jitter immunity.
