We introduce and demonstrate an all-optical clock recovery scheme for return-to-zero transmission systems based on the buffering property of the temporal Talbot effect. This linear, dispersive, and, in principle, lossless phenomenon allows us to generate a regular pulse train from a pseudorandom (aperiodic) input train. Proof-of-principle operation at one… (More)
The temporal Talbot effect has been studied as a means for lossless optical pulse repetition rate multiplication and is a process which occurs in a first order dispersive medium. In this paper, we demonstrate all-optical clock recovery for short pulse (low duty cycle RZ) communications using single-mode fiber as a dispersive medium and the use of compact,… (More)
We demonstrate novel all-optical clock recovery for short pulse communication systems based on the temporal Talbot effect. By simply propagating a data stream through 80 km of single-mode fiber, we generate a periodic pulse train.
We demonstrate optical bistability in a semiconductor fiber laser incorporating an electro-absorption modulator. The width of the bistable region can be controlled by simple adjustment of the laser operating parameters.
