Abstract

We report on the experimental assessment of an all-optical clock-recovery scheme at 40-Gb/s cascading a polarization-insensitive bulk-based self-pulsating (SP) laser and a high spectral purity quantum-dots-based SP laser. It is demonstrated experimentally that such a clock-recovery scheme is polarization insensitive, efficient in the jitter filtering, and tolerant for an input optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR) as low as 15 dB/0.1 nm. It is shown theoretically that the jitter-filtering function of the cascade is the product of the transfer functions of both lasers. The contributions of the phase noise of these two lasers to the final jitter are also identified and quantified. The influence of the degradation of the OSNR to the total timing jitter is also analyzed. The approach proposed in this paper offers the real opportunity to realize an all-optical clock recovery with a performance compatible for system applications.
