Abstract

A dispersion-imbalanced loop mirror (DILM) was used to demonstrate nonlinear suppression of interferometric noise over a wavelength range of 28 nm. The signal passes through a nonlinear precompreesor to compress the pulse width to 1 ps. An exponential increment in power penalty of interferometric noise was observed with increase in cross-talk. It was shown that DLIM managed to suppress the interferometric noise and a clear output was observed.
