Asynchronous digital optical regenerator for 4 x 40 Gbit/s WDM to 160 Gbit/s OTDM conversion


We propose and numerically analyse an asynchronous digital optical regenerator using a single-EAM loop and a novel neighbor-combine approach. It effectively re-synchronizes input signals with arbitrary phases to the local clock, and regenerates signals with high amplitude fluctuation and polarization mode dispersion. We demonstrate the application of this regenerator for 4 x 40 Gbit/s WDM to 160 Gbit/s OTDM conversion.
