Abstract

We experimentally investigate a pass-through scheme for all-optical noise suppression in a SOA-based interferometric structure at 10 Gb/s. An input power dynamic range of ~8 dB as well as a noise suppression capability of ~4.5 dB has been demonstrated. Furthermore, the transmission properties have been investigated showing a small pre-amplified penalty of ~0.3 dB after transmission over 31 km of standard single mode fiber.
