This PhD work demonstrates the possibilities of the use of multimodal SOA-based structures in non-linear switching devices with the focus on optical signal regeneration. Two layouts have been proposed. A first type is based on the non-linear effects in a 2X2 MMI-SOA. A second regenerator is based on a Michelson interferometer containing a monomodal SOA in one arm and a 1X1 MMI-SOA in the other arm.
