All-optical 40 Gbit/s 2R regeneration in scalable WDM networks

Boscolo, Sonia, Turitsyn, Sergei K. and Blow, Keith J. (2003). All-optical 40 Gbit/s 2R regeneration in scalable WDM networks. IN: 2003 Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics Europe. IEEE.


In this paper we propose a 2R regeneration scheme based on a nonlinear optical loop mirror (NOLM) and optical filtering. We numerically investigate wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) operation at a channel bit rate of 40 Gbit/s. In distinction to our previous work, we focus here on the regenerative characteristics and signal quality after a single transmission section, whose length is varied from 200 to 1000 km. © 2003 IEEE.
