A novel method for the multiplication of the repetition
rate of full duty-cycle return-to-zero optical sources is presented.
It employs the memory property of a Fabry–Pérot filter
for the multiplication task, combined with the gain saturation of a
semiconductor optical amplifier for amplitude equalization. This
concept has been applied to quadruplicate the rate of a distributed
feedback laser source operating at 10 GHz.
