Paper Abstract

We analyze the system performance of gain-saturated SOA-based all-optical wavelength shifting with respect to its dynamic characteristics. When considering the risetime, contrast ratio and intersymbol interference, we find that there exists an optimal probe power and wavelength for high-speed wavelength shifting which reduces the power penalty by 3 dB. The minimum power penalties for the data rates of 10 Gb/s and 20 Gb/s are 2.5 dB and 5 dB, respectively.
