Abstract

Simultaneous repolarization of two 10-Gb/s polarization-scrambled wavelength channels was investigated. A mutual-injection-locked laser diodes (MILD) was used. It was found that MILD functions as an all-optical polarization controller and also used to repolarize 10-Gb/s polarization-scrambled nonreturn-to-zero (NRZ) signals.
