Paper Abstract

A new all-optical lumped regenerator for the fiber-loop memory system is presented. The semiconductor device fulfills an extremely precise recovery of the amplitude, width, and shape of initially soliton-like but then distorted in a fiber-loop picosecond optical pulses, so enhanced number of restoration cycles in the memory system can be produced. The reason is all- optically implemented digital type of bit pulses recovery, which is conditioned by a total `stabilization effect' relative to all over the parameters of ultrashort pulses with sech-like shape. Two versions of lumped regenerator design are developed, numerically estimated and compared with each other.
