Abstract

A regenerator for differential phase-shift keying data, consisting of two Mach–Zehnder interferometers and two amplitude regenerators, is examined theoretically. The result, which shows that the phase error is suppressed if phase-preserving amplitude regenerators are used, provides a theoretical description of an already experimentally implemented regenerator.
