Paper Abstract

In the last years, one of the tremendous progresses has been made in the development of all-optical networks. One of the tools to improvement the budget of low- and moderate bit-rate fiber-optic communication systems is the stretching transmitter's pulse at the input of the link and recompressing after. This stretching circumvents limits imposed by disruptive nonlinear effects occurring in link at high pulse peak power. The final pulse quality and the budget improvement are governed by the quality of the pulse stretching and recompression process. The design of the stretching/recompression schemes is discussed. The performances of these schemes are evaluated.
