Abstract

The design and performance of a novel all-fibre based 2R regenerator are presented. Simulations at 10 Gbit/s indicate Q-factor back-to-back improvements of 2.3 and 1.6 dB for single-channel and WDM operation respectively, which are the highest reported values. The transmission reach is increased from 3500 km to more than 6000 km at 10 Gbit/s. Towards practical realisation of this device, low-loss coupling between non-linear fibres is reported.
