Abstract
Nonlinear Optical Loop Mirrors have been considered as nonlinear compressors for high input power optical pulses. The present work proposes a NOLM scheme that compresses and reshapes low power picosecond optical pulses in the miliwatts range. This scheme is based on a Semiconductor Optical Amplifier and the use of highly nonlinear Photonic Crystal fibers. The attention of this study is the amplitude noise and timing jitter behavior of this scheme.
