Experimental demonstration of all-optical regeneration using an MMI-SOA

Abstract
A novel all-optical 2R regenerator based on a multimode interference coupler (MMI) semiconductor optical amplifier is presented. Static measurements of the transfer function reveal a digital transfer characteristic and a high increase in extinction ratio. The experiments are in good agreement with simulations, which have been done using a modified beam propagation method program. The device has a high tolerance to the MMI length. It has been fabricated in an all-active layout, avoiding the need for active/passive integration and is very compact.
