Abstract
Based on a nonlinear fiber loop mirror (NOLM) composed of a fiber coupler (FC) and a highly nonlinear fiber (HNLF), a scheme is proposed to simultaneously realize the bandwidth enhancement and the time-delay signature (TDS) suppression of a chaotic signal generated from an external cavity optical feedback semiconductor laser. The simulation results show that, after passing through the NOLM, the bandwidth of chaotic signal can be efficiently enhanced and the TDS can be well suppressed under suitable operation parameters. Furthermore, the influences of the power-splitting ratio of the FC, the averaged power of the chaotic signal entering into the FC and the length of the HNLF on the chaotic bandwidth and TDS are analyzed, and the optimized parameters are determined.
