We propose a simple way to design a fully integrated and passive all-optical pulse reshaper in the aim of reamplifying and reshaping (2R) regeneration of optical digital signals. The device could be achieved from a coupled microresonator structure with Kerr nonlinearity. By using time-domain simulation, we show that we can obtain a clear nonlinear power transfer that is capable of improving signal-to-noise ratio and reducing bit error rate for digital signals. The reshaping performances are estimated by calculating Q-factor enhancement. Since we take benefit from field enhancement at resonance, this integrated reshaper could be much smaller than other gates based on nonlinear fibers or waveguides.
