Paper Abstract

In this paper an efficient method is proposed to maximize the tuning range of a fiber parametric wavelength converter based on degenerated four-wave mixing. The physical mechanism behind efficient phase matching over a broad wavelength range has been analyzed as a function of the fiber dispersion and nonlinear properties. Analytic expressions of the optimum input signal wavelength and maximal bandwidth are deduced and it is revealed that by carefully selecting fibers with appropriate zero dispersion wavelength and high-order dispersion coefficients the tuning range can be greatly broadened and tailored to cover any WDM bands.
