Paper Abstract

This paper describes numerical and analytical analyses relating to the use of nonlinear four-wave mixing in a semiconductor optical amplifier medium for anticipated wavelength conversion at ultrahigh data rates of 320 and 640  Gb/s. The proposed system guidelines and design show that a maximum wavelength shift of 30 nm can be achieved at 640  Gb/s, while still maintaining an acceptable bit error rate. In addition, the impact of the pump–probe ratio and semiconductor optical amplifier bias current are investigated and the results are reported.
