Abstract

By using a semiconductor optical amplifier backward injected by a dark-optical-comb pulse train at 10 GHz , we demonstrate a 10 Gbit s all-optical nonreturn-to-zero (NRZ) to return-to-zero (RZ) format conversion of an incoming optical pseudorandom binary sequence (PRBS) data strieam. Both the polarity and the wavelength of data are conserved during format conversion. Without any preamplification, the extinction ratio of degraded optical NRZ PRBS data is greatly improved from 7.13 to 13.6 dB after NRZ-to-RZ conversion. An ultralow bit-error rate of 10 12 at a data rate as high as 10 Gbits s is obtained with a received optical power of 18.3 dBm . The converted RZ PRBS data exhibit a negative power penalty of > 3.7 dB compared with the NRZ PRBS data at a bit-error rate of 10 12 .
