A pulse-storage ring is an optical device capable of memorizing a pulse sequence of 0’s and 1’s. The soliton ring of Nakazawa et al. [Electron. Lett. 29, 729 (1993)] with nearly unlimited transmission distance is such a device. We propose and experimentally demonstrate a different type of pulse-storage ring that uses intensity-dependent interferometric action to create a stronger intracavity transmission differential between the 0’s and the 1’s.
