Abstract

We report all-optical regeneration of the state of polarization of a 40Gbit/s return-to-zero telecommunication signal. The device discussed here consists of a 6.2-km-long nonzero dispersion-shifted fiber, with low polarization mode dispersion, pumped from the output end by a backward propagating wave coming from either an external continuous source or a reflection of the signal. An initially scrambled signal acquires a degree of polarization close to 100% toward the polarization generator output. All-optical regeneration is confirmed by means of polarization and bit-error-rate measurements as well as real-time observation of the eye diagrams. We show that the physical mechanism underlying the observed four-wave-mixing-based polarization attraction phenomenon can be described in terms of the geometric approach developed for the study of Hamiltonian singularities.

Trajectories followed by the signal SOP to reach the final polarization state (SOP attractor), represented (a), (b) in the energy momentum representation and (c), (d) on the surface of the Poincaré sphere. As indicated in (a), (b), each regular point of the energy momentum diagram refers to a torus (see the text for details). In (a) and (c), the evolution of the input S(z=0)=[0.30,0.60,0.74] (red) is shown for a transient time τtr of the same order as the time required to propagate throughout the omnipolarizer, τtrτL=2L/vg; the signal SOP exhibits an erratic polarization dynamics before reaching its attractor polarization state. In (b) and (d), the evolution of the three inputs S(z=0)=[0.30,0.60,0.74] (red), S(0)=[0.50,0.50,0.70] (blue), and S(0)=[0.90,0.0,0.43] (green) is shown for τtr=103τL; the signal SOP adiabatically relaxes to its attractor polarization state. The arrows show the direction in which the trajectories travel.

(a) Theoretical Poincaré representation obtained by numerically solving the spatiotemporal SOP evolution defined by Eq. (1). We considered a set of 64 different input signal SOPs, uniformly distributed over the Poincaré sphere. The blue dots represent output SOPs. The first row refers to a fiber length of L=5Λ0, and the second row to L=20Λ0. For the traditional two-source configuration [(a) and (c)], the signal is attracted toward a single SOP, which is determined by the injected pump SOP (green dot). For the omnipolarizer configuration [(b) and (d)], the input SOP ellipticity determines the two basins of attraction of the omnipolarizer, corresponding to the two hemispheres of the Poincaré sphere.
