Paper Abstract

We report some of our recent results on all-optical wavelength conversion including result on broadband orthogonal pumped four-wave-mixing in semiconductor optical amplifiers and dual-wavelength injection-locking of a Fabry- Perot laser diode. The high speed performance of wavelength conversion buy dual-wavelength injection locking of a Fabry- Perot laser was investigated experimentally and we present for the first time results on wavelength conversion at 10Gbit/s using dual wavelength injection-locking of a Fabry- Perot laser diode. The experimental results for all-optical wavelength conversion using broadband orthogonal pumping in a fiber ring containing a semiconductor optical amplifier is described. We also describe the latest result on a 40Gbit/s polarization independent all-optical wavelength converter based on polarization diversity and four-wave-mixing in a single semiconductor optical amplifier.
