Abstract

In this paper we propose a conjugate nonlinear optical loop mirror scheme (Conj-NOLM) by cascading two NOLMs with an intermediate optical phase conjugator stage (OPC). This new configuration utilizes mid-span spectral inversion to cancel out the nonlinear phase distortion that is introduced by the two NOLM units. Moreover, numerical investigation has been carried out for 16-QAM signals demonstrating increased robustness against accumulated amplitude and phase distortions in the transmission links.
