Paper Abstract

We present an optical receiver for RZ-DPSK signals that use photonic balancing. Photonic balancing is achieved through pulse counter-propagation and collision in a saturated SOA. We explain the principles of photonic balancing and show how it can lead to an improvement in RZ-DPSK detection by 3 dB, similar to electrical balancing. We also show how this scheme can be used as a Mamyshev-type regenerator.
