Boscolo, Sonia, Blow, Keith J. and Turitsyn, Sergei K. (2003). All-optical 2R regeneration in scalable 40 Gbit/s wavelength-division multiplexed networks. Journal of Optical Networking, 2 (1), pp. 10-16.

Abstract

We propose a 2R regeneration scheme based on a nonlinear optical loop mirror and optical filtering. The feasibility of wavelength-division multiplexing operation at 40 Gbit/s is numerically demonstrated. We examine the characteristics of one-step regeneration and discuss networking applications.
