Paper Abstract

A novel scheme of photonic frequency conversion based on two-pump four-wave mixing in a semiconductor optical amplifier is proposed. Characterized by its wide conversion range, the proposed scheme has the potential to generate millimeter waves at much higher frequency and convert several signal channels simultaneously. The system performance is analyzed through a numerical model, and the effect of the pump-signal pulse parameters on the conversion efficiency is discussed.
