Abstract

We propose and experimentally demonstrate a monolithically integrated circuit composed of a reflective concatenated semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and electro-absorber (EA) for high bit-rate carrier re-modulation. Simultaneous erasure and re-modulation of intensity modulated (IM) signals are shown. Although the experimental results are performed at 5 Gb/s, reflective SOA-EA re-modulators have the potential for operation at higher bit-rates.
