Abstract

In this paper, a new method is presented to exploit the cross-gain modulation mechanism in semiconductor optical amplifiers to reduce the intensity noise of spectrum-sliced communications systems via conversion of the modulated incoherent optical signal into a coherent signal before the detection process. Wavelength-division-multiplexed networks using broad-band sources have performance limited by intensity noise; conversion from an incoherent to a coherent signal reduces the intensity noise and enables the elimination of the bit-error-rate floor.
