Paper Abstract

This invited contribution reports recent results on all-optical signal regeneration using semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs). Those include results obtained using the cross-gain-compression (XGC) effect in common SOAs for wavelength preserving 2R regeneration of both RZ and NRZ signals, and regenerative amplification up to 80 Gb/s obtained thanks to detuned filtering of self phase modulation (SPM) in a quantum dot (QD) SOA.
