Paper Abstract

A regenerator is a key element in the long haul fiber communication systems. It must preserve the contrast between the pulses corresponding to logic ones and zeroes, and the high enough level of the logic ones, as well as to restore them to their position on the pulse sequence. In order to solve these problems, nonlinear optical elements are used. Those elements based on nonlinear phenomena in fibers are preferred due to their high pulse repetition frequency operation. Recently elements based on the SRS were used for regeneration of the optical signals [1]. Here, we discuss the possibility of using a SRS element to regenerate short pulses at the presence of their walk-off.
