Paper Abstract

A novel geometry for all-optical clock recovery using a semiconductor amplifier yields a strong locking mechanism in a short cavity. The clock recovery laser is characterized with regard to its performance in a system environment. The clock circuit is operated at data rates from 1 to 40 GHz and exhibits a large locking bandwidth and low timing jitter.
