Abstract

We present the results of studies of fiber ring reflectors that are pulse excited in the negative dispersion regime. An intensity-dependent fiber switch is proposed for improved thresholding and pulse output characteristics over those previously reported. Schemes for fiber switches relying on solitary-wave collision-induced phase shifts are also discussed. A pulse regenerator and logic gates are proposed, each capable of correcting timing drifts.
