Abstract

We propose a 2R regeneration scheme based on a nonlinear optical loop mirror and optical filtering. The feasibility of wavelength-division multiplexing operation at 40 Gbit/s is numerically demonstrated. We examine the characteristics of one-step regeneration and discuss networking applications.
