Paper Abstract

Semiconductor laser diodes play an important role in synchronous optical networks as sources of optical modelocked pulse trains with robust timing stability. In this paper, it is demonstrated how these diodes may be used in such applications as optical clock distribution, photonic network synchronization, and all-optic clock recovery. Emphasis is placed on all-optical clock recovery with preliminary results presented.
