Paper Abstract

We report that an optical wavelength converter can be constructed by combining a figure-8 laser and a nonlinear loop mirror (NOLM), all in fiber form. This forms a hybrid passively and actively mode-locked laser. The input signal pulse train is fed into the NOLM and the output wavelength- converted pulse train is obtained through a fiber coupler in the figure-8 laser.
