Research output: Unpublished contribution to conferenceUnpublished Conference Paperpeer-review


Using a compact, integrated device at 2.488Gb/s, simultaneous NRZ to RZ format conversion and regeneration was achieved. The regenerated signal has a negative BER sensitivity of -1.5dB compared with a data signal transmitted down 101km of standard fiber.
