Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate all-optical reshaping of 40 Gbits s packets by using cross-gain compression in a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). This scheme, which is based on cross-saturation effects between two conjugate signals copropagating in a single SOA, is wavelength preserving and polarization independent and does not suffer from any transient effect at packet edges. We report evidence of noise redistribution and packet reshaping by means of the bit-error rate versus threshold measurements for different input optical signal-to-noise ratios.
