Paper Abstract

Recent results on a new multiple-quantum-well saturable absorber (SA) device allowing fast responding power stabilization are reviewed. Combined with the classical SA achieving extinction ratio improvement, it allows all-optical amplitude-shift-keying 2R signal regeneration. Furthermore its phase-preserving characteristics make it potentially useful to prevent phase noise accumulation in phase encoded signals.
