Abstract

We present an all-optical header pre-processor based on self-phase modulation in a semiconductor optical amplifier. The operation principle is discussed and demonstrated on packets with a NRZ header at a data-rate of 2.5 Gbit/s and a Manchester encoded payload at a data-rate of 10 Gbit/s. We also demonstrate that the header pre-processor improves the performance of an all-optical header processor based on two-pulse correlation in a SLALOM configuration.
