Regenerative all-optical wavelength multicast for next generation WDM network and system applications

Regenerative all-optical wavelength multicast for next generation WDM network and system... We experimentally demonstrate regenerative all-optical wavelength multicast by simultaneous multi-wavelength conversion of 10 Gb/s non-return-to-zero signals to four ITU 100 GHz spaced channels with a receiver sensitivity improvement of 1.84 dB and less than 0.14 dB difference among all the multicast channels, using a single commercial monolithically integrated SOA-MZI. The multicast device also exhibited about 22 dB optical signal-to-noise ratio enhancement for all the converted channels compared to the original signal channel without wavelength conversion. Our experiment for the first time revealed the regeneration properties of a SOA-MZI device for WDM wavelength multicast purposes, and proved the excellent performance of a simple scheme for various future network and system applications, such as all-optical wavelength routing and grid networking.
