Boscolo, Sonia, Turitsyn, Sergei K. and Mezentsev, Vladimir K. (2004). 2R and 3R optical regeneration in 40 Gbit/s WDM terrestrial networks. IN: Nonlinear guided waves and their applications. Technical digest . Optical Society of America.


We analyse a 2R regenerator using nonlinear-optical-loop-mirror and a 3R regenerator employing nonlinearly-enhanced amplitude modulator in 40Gbit/s WDM networks based on standard fibre (SMF). Characterization of one- (600km of SMF) and two-step regeneration is presented.
