Paper Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate a 4×10-Gb/s optical multicast scheme using a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and a single optical source, which produce a 10-GHz multi-wavelength pulse-trains used as the probe light of the SOA. The multicast principle is based on the multi-wavelength conversion (MWC) by means of the interaction of both cross gain modulation (XGM) and transient cross phase modulation (T-XPM) of the SOA. Because of the nonlinear amplification of SOA, the 4 output copies are regenerated with respect to the input degraded signal. This scheme is very simple and allows photonic integration.
