Abstract

We provide design guidelines and resulting outputs of a self-pulsating source based on regenerative self-phase modulation and offset band-pass filtering. We assess the conditions for self-pulsation and discuss the output pulse properties under the influence of spectral separation between the filters and their bandwidth. We also examine the source behavior when the central wavelength of the bandpass filters are subject to increasing spectral separation in the pulse-buffering regime. The results emphasize the role of chromatic dispersion for the reduction of amplitude and timing jitter.
