Abstract

Wavelength conversion and signal regeneration are realized simultaneously employing nonlinear optical loop mirror(NOLM). The experiments demonstrate that NOLM has strong regenerative capability when it is used as wavelength conversion media. Proper choice of initial state of polarization controller in NOLM can enhance the extinction ratio of the converted signal.
