Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


SOA-based Sagnac interferometers are traditionally regarded as optical RZ signal processing units. We first analyze and demonstrate NRZ wavelength conversion by introducing an interference bias for the Sagnac loop caused by the polarization control.
