We designed and built a novel all-optical re-timing, re-amplifying, and re-shaping (3R) regeneration system based on terahertz optical asymmetric demultiplexers (TOADs) developed in our laboratory. The system is capable of parallel processing multiple wavelengths, a feature which will significantly improve the scalability of current wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks. Performance against timing jitter of the regenerator is analyzed by VPI TransmissionMakerâ„¢ simulation platform and supported with experimental results at 10 Gb/s bit rate. The all-optical regenerator showed jitter tolerance up to 0.8 UIPP, while breaking the original input BER floor with improved BER at 10~9.
