Paper Abstract

An all-optical power equalization based on nonlinear polarization rotation in a single semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) is proposed for waveform distortion reduction. Simulations have been done for the degraded data signals to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed scheme. The primarily simulated results indicated that the switching power is less than 10 mW. The all-optical power equalization mentioned in this paper has promoting potential to improve the signal quality and needs low optical power. Our approach has a simple configuration and allows for photonic integration, which can be constructed by commercially available components.
