Paper Abstract

The key component for the information processing systems exploiting unlimited circulation or transmission of digital optical trains through fiber waveguides is optical pulse regenerator. Two types of travelling-wave structure based lumped regenerators are recognized and in both the cases the basic properties of structures provide the stabilization effect relative to all over the parameters of outlet picosecond pulses without regard to perturbations of incoming pulses. We develop the method of comprehensive scalling that is associated with the needed properties of multilayer structures as well as with behavior of pulses. The pursued consideration shows that multilayer semiconductor structures make it possible to reshape, and in particular to recover, all-optically both the fundamental solitons and the guiding-center solitons, as the case requires in view of their application to information processing systems.
