Low-Power , Phase-Preserving 2 R Amplitude Regenerator

We propose a modification of a NALM-based 2R regenerator of phase-encoded signals which operates at considerably lower input powers than was studied earlier. Our modification consists of replacing the core-matched and lossless fiber coupler in the NALM by a coupler with a propagation constant mismatch and loss asymmetrically distributed between the two… CONTINUE READING
