Boscolo, Sonia and Turitsyn, Sergei K. (2005). All-optical signal regeneration by temporal slicing of nonlinearly flattened optical waveform. IEEE photonics technology letters, 17 (6), pp. 1235-1237.

Abstract

A novel all-optical time domain regeneration technique using nonlinear pulse broadening and flattening in normal dispersion fiber and subsequent temporal slicing by an amplitude modulator (or a device performing a similar function) is proposed. Substantial suppression of the timing jitter of jitter-degraded optical signals is demonstrated using the proposed approach.

Uncontrolled Keywords: all-optical signal regeneration, nonlinear temporal pulse broadening and flattening, optical temporal gating/slicing
