Paper Abstract

A new way to approach the characterization of an all optical regenerator is presented in this paper. The device consists of a semiconductor amplifier laser containing an homogeneous mixture of saturable media (gain and absorption) with different saturation parameters. A modification introduced in the photon density matrix equation is the clue idea of the proposed characterization. Using this characterization it will be shown in the present paper that a semiconductor with such characteristics, and a proper design, may improve the profile of the pulses transmitted through an all optical link. It is also shown that the device may reduce the relative statistical fluctuations of the incident optical power.
