A novel non-return-to-zero (NRZ) to return-to-zero (RZ) format converter is proposed and demonstrated through an optical simulation software. This converter first adopt a polarizer modulator (PolM), to polarizer modulate the input NRZ signal, then a RF clock signal is used to restrain the side-lobes, thus to achieve NRZ/RZ conversion. The proposed converter features a convenient way to adjust the duty cycle of the output RZ signal, a same wavelength before and after converter, a very small time-jitter, high conversion efficiency, low cost and some other advantages, which could be expected to have an extensive use in high-speed optical communication networks.
