Abstract
This paper presents the advantages to be gained from the use of unwished transitory peak appeared at the output of a Fabry-Perot optical amplifier when it is switched frorr a low to high state. Simulations and numerical results show the possibility of achieving reshaping and contrast improvement of optical incident pulses. Potential applications of this bistable laser amplifier as untimed regenerative repeater under certain conditions are finally discussed.
