Abstract

A 10 Gbit/s optical data stream has been regenerated ail-optically by clock recovery and remodulation. The regenerator consists of a fibre ring laser, modelocked by the incoming data stream, and a Kerr shutter acting as an all-optical AND gate to recode the ring laser pulses with the incoming data. Error ratio measurements for an all-optical regenerator are presented for the first time and the future potential of all-optical regeneration is discussed.
