Abstract

A vertical-access passive all-optical gate has been used to improve the extinction ratio of a 160 GHz picosecond pulse train at 1555 nm. An extinction ratio enhancement of 6 dB is observed within an 8 nm bandwidth. Such a device is a promising candidate for low-cost all optical reamplication and reshaping (2R) regeneration at 160Gbitss.
