Boscolo, Sonia, Turitsyn, Sergei K. and Mezentsev, Vladimir K. (2005). Performance comparison of 2R and 3R optical regeneration schemes at 40 Gb/s for application to all-optical networks. Journal of lightwave technology, 23 (1), pp. 304-309.

Abstract

This work numerically analyzes the performances of a 2R (reamplification and reshaping) regenerator based on a nonlinear optical loop mirror and a 3R (reamplification, reshaping, and retiming) regenerator using a nonlinearly enhanced amplitude modulator in 40-Gb/s standard single-mode fiber (SMF)-based optical networks with large amplifier spacing. The characteristics of one(600 km of SMF) and two-step regeneration are examined and the feasibility of wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) operation is demonstrated.

Uncontrolled Keywords: all-optical regeneration, amplitude modulation, nonlinear optical loop mirror
