Paper Abstract

We report the development of a lab prototype for all optical synchronization at 10 GHz. Adjusting the distance between the AR coated facet of the MQW semiconductor laser and the ferrule it was possible to induce the self-pulsation needed for correct operation. In the presence of optical RZ signals, the device leaves is natural pulsation frequency synchronizing with the input data.
