Abstract

An SOA-assisted 40 Gbit/s DQPSK-to-OOK format converter is presented. An SOA-based amplification stage, after conversion, provides negative penalty (>1.5 dB) and extinction ratio improvement (up to 6 dB), also after propagation, making the converted OOK-signals suitable for optical processing.
