Abstract
The regenerative properties of using a clock-modulated pump for higher-order four-wave mixing in a highly nonlinear fiber are demonstrated through simulations and experimental measurements, at 10 Gb/s, for 3R optical regeneration and NRZ-to-RZ format conversion. The use of a clock-modulated pump for higher-order four-wave mixing enables retiming and enhances the reshaping properties of the signal, thereby improving the regeneration of the signal, relative to a continuous-wave pump.
