All-Optical 2R Regeneration Using the Hysteresis in a Distributed Feedback Laser Diode


A broadband optical 2R regenerator based on a single distributed feedback laser is demonstrated for nonreturn to zero signals at a bitrate of 10 Gb/s. A semi-analytical approach for the influence of hysteresis on the transfer function of a 2R regenerator is shown.
