We investigate the cascadability of a microcavity-saturable-absorber-based phase-preserving amplitude regenerator for RZ-DPSK signals. The results show that the tolerance of phase-encoded signals to nonlinear phase noise is increased. A distance improvement ratio up to 1.6 is experimentally demonstrated.
