Owen, M and Saxena, V and Penty, RV and White, IH (2000) 10-Gbits/s all-optical 3R regeneration and format conversion using a gain-switched DFB laser. Pacific Rim Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics, CLEO - Technical Digest. pp. 472-473.Full text not available from this repository.
A strain-compensated multiple quantum well device is used as a DFB laser, this has been optimized for low jitter gain switched operation at 10 GHz. The signal is transmitted down 80 km of standard fiber then amplified, filtered and polarization controlled before being injected into a DFB laser. The purpose of this regeneration process is to gain switch the DFB with the extracted clock signal in order to retime the converted signal. This process also simultaneously converts the input NRZ format to an output RZ data to format and results in a signal whose optical power and extinction ratio are considerably improved by the regeneration process.
