Abstract

In this paper, we extend the system application of optical injection-locked (OIL) vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) to future optical networks by realizing multifunctional operation using a filter-assisted OIL-VCSEL scheme that can be reconfigured. By using a single chirp-adjustable injection-locked VCSEL (either single mode or multimode) followed by a tunable delay line interferometer, we experimentally demonstrate three functions, showing ultra-wide band (UWB) monocycle generation, nonreturn-to-zero (NRZ) to pseudoreturn-to-zero (PRZ) data format conversion, and NRZ-data clock recovery at 10 Gb/s.
