Demonstration of fast all-optical polarization controller using mutual injection-locked laser diode

By LY Chan, PKA Wai, B Moses, WH Chung and HY Tam


Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO 2002), Long Beach, CA, 19-24 May 2002An all-optical polarization controller based on a mutual-injection-locked laser diode (MILD) was proposed. The principle for MILD polarization controller was the combined effects of polarization discrimination and intensity stabilization by an injection-locked Fabry-Perot laser diode. MILD controlled the state-of-polarization of the incoming signal by acting as an intensity compensating polarizer. The 0.8 dB improvement in power penalty demonstrated noise suppression by MILD.Department of Electrical EngineeringDepartment of Electronic and Information EngineeringRefereed conference pape
