An analysis of amplified recirculating structures for producing a pseudo-continuous wave, PCW, signal is presented. Experimentations with amplification provided by EDFA and SOA are shown. Both the hold-on function and the switch-off function are analyzed. The comparison between structures with different amplifiers shows better duration performances for EDFAs, but faster all-optical operation capabilities for SOAs.

Abstract

An analysis of amplified recirculating structures for producing a pseudo-continuous wave, PCW, signal is presented. Experimentations with amplification provided by EDFA and SOA are shown. Both the hold-on function and the switch-off function are analyzed. The comparison between structures with different amplifiers shows better duration performances for EDFAs, but faster all-optical operation capabilities for SOAs.
