Paper Abstract

This paper focuses on the experimental demonstration of all-optical wavelength conversion at 10 Gbit/s based on cross-bias modulation (XBM) in electroabsorption modulators (EAMs). It is shown that the input 1552 nm pump signal can be converted to 1562.2 nm at 10 Gbit/s by XBM. The optical spectra of both the pump and the probe signals after wavelength conversion is given and the eye diagram of the converted signal is demonstrated. The advantages of the proposed wavelength conversion scheme are also discussed.
