All-optical passive 2R regeneration for N×40 Gbit/s WDM transmission using NOLM and novel filtering technique

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We propose an all-optical passive 2R regeneration method for WDM (N×40 Gbit/s) dispersion-managed RZ transmission based on specially designed WDM guiding filters and in-line nonlinear optical loop mirrors. By system optimisation, the feasibility of 150 GHz-spaced × l6 channel transmission over 25,000 km of standard fibre is numerically demonstrated.
