Paper Abstract

In this paper we present results from the study of optical signal regeneration using Mamyshev type regenerator. We have performed the simulations and experimental characterization of regenerator by obtaining it`s transfer function and output optical signal to noise ratio measurements for two different filters - fixed and a tunable optical filter. Investigated regenerator setup consists of a high power erbium doped fiber amplifier, highly nonlinear fiber and a single stage optical filtering. Signal used for regeneration was an on-off keying return to zero code 40 Gbps pulse sequence. To find out optimum filter pass-band shift from signal`s central wavelength the regenerator`s transfer function was measured. Results show that highest output signal to noise ratio improvement for the fixed filter is at 0.6nm shift and amplifier output power set to 63 mW. While the tunable filter shift is 0.7nm at the 100 mW power level.
