Abstract

We present analytical and numerical results for the amount of timing-jitter reduction obtained in an all-optical clock-recovery device in which a data stream is used to mode lock a fiber laser through cross-phase modulation. This situation is analyzed when the laser pulses are close to optical solitons, so the effect of the data stream on the laser pulses is predicted from soliton perturbation theory. In our numerical simulations, both periodic input and pseudorandom input data streams are considered. The results show that for both types of data the rms timing jitter in the recovered clock is reduced significantly from that present in the input data.
