Abstract

A novel optical translator that can perform 3R-regeneration and wavelength conversion of high speed return-to-zero signals is demonstrated at 20 Gbit/s. Efficient retiming and BER performance is measured using an Mach-Zehnder interferometer with integrated semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs).
