Paper Abstract

We experimentally investigated the wavelength matching between the probe light and injection-locked modes of FP-LD (Fabry-Perot laser diode) for wavelength conversion configuration. Wavelength conversion from 1552.9nm to 1548.5nm was obtained experimentally based on cross-gain modulation with the 10GHz repetition rate optical pulse train in a FP-LD. Our results indicate that there always exists a selected longitudinal mode of the probe light in the FP-LD to maximize the extinction ratio of the conversion signal. Moreover, there also exists an optimum injection signal pulse power to improve the conversion signal further under the same matching mode of probe light wavelength with the constant input power, and the constant detuning between the probe light and signal pulse wavelengths and the locked modes of FP-LD with a certain bias current range.
