Timing Jitter Reduction by All-Optical Signal Regeneration Using a Polarization Bistable VCSEL

Abstract

All-optical signal regeneration is experimentally demonstrated using a polarization bistable vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser. The retiming operation of signal regeneration is performed by using an AND gate operation and a reset operation. An optical clock pulse and input data signal are used for the AND gate operation. The timing jitter of the… (More)
