Abstract

This paper presents experimental results for an all-optical free-space optical (FSO) relay-assisted system by employing an all-optical regenerate and forward (AORF) scheme in order to increase the transmission link span. The ultra-short pulse (i.e., 2 ps) regeneration technique based on Mamyshev method is adopted. We have developed a dedicated experimental test-bed composed of optical fiber components and FSO links to demonstrate the proposed scheme and evaluate its performance in terms of the Q-factor and bit error rate (BER) under turbulence regimes for both single and dual-hop network architectures. We show that, using the AORF a hundred times improvement in the BER performance is achieved compared to the amplify-and-forward scheme for a fixed signal-to-noise ratio under turbulence conditions.
