We propose a novel self-homodyne optical–electrical–optical clock recovery technique for binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) signals using commercial optical and electrical components. We present the principle of operation as well as a proof-of-concept experiment for a 10.7 Gb/s BPSK signal clock recovery transmitted over a dispersion-compensated link of 20 km of single-mode fiber. Suppression of pattern-related frequency noise at the output of the recovered clock is shown. The timing jitter of the recovered clock at 10.7 GHz was measured to be ∼450 fs∼450 fs (integration range: 100 Hz–10 MHz).
