Abstract

A novel dual-control configuration of nonlinear loop mirrors is used for all-optical soliton synchronous regeneration. Simulations show substantial improvement in transmission in this device compared with single-control devices, owing to chirp-free modulation. The absence of chirp is confirmed experimentally through a spectral analysis of the dual-control modulator.
