Optical data transmission using periodic in-line all-optical format conversion

Boscolo, Sonia and Turitsyn, Sergei K. (2004). Optical data transmission using periodic in-line all-optical format conversion. Optics express, 12 (20), pp. 4875-4880.


We introduce a novel transmission technique of periodic in-line all-optical format conversion between return-to-zero and non-return-to-zero-like aimed at delaying the accumulation of format-specific impairments. A particular realization of this approach using in-line normal dispersion fibre-enhanced nonlinear optical loop mirrors at 40Gbit/s data rate is presented.
