Abstract

Nonlinear optical phase conjugation is known to be an effective technique for dispersion compensation in optical fibers. It requires an optical filter to separate out only the phase conjugated signal at the output to achieve signal pulse re-narrowing by its subsequent propagation through an identical medium. In this paper, a compact design, which integrates the optical phase conjugator and the filter on a single substrate of periodically poled lithium niobate and facilitates the use of a single pump source for both phase conjugation and amplification, is proposed and analyzed using computer simulations.
