Abstract

We demonstrate the cascaded operation of an all-optical 2R burst-mode regenerator consisting of a single Mach-Zehnder interferometer, using a loop configuration that introduces a 6-dB power variation on each recirculation of the data. The device is shown to regenerate error-free 10-Gb/s data streams for up to six successive loop recirculations.
