All-optical format conversion from inverse-return-to-zero to non-return-to-zero using a Mach-Zehnder delay interferometer

Paper Abstract

All-optical format conversion from inverse-return-to-zero (inverse-RZ) to non-return-to-zero (NRZ) is realized by using a half-bit-delay Mach-Zehnder delay interferometer. Experimental results demonstrate that the converted NRZ signal has better receiver sensitivity than the back-to-back inverse-RZ signal.
