Paper Abstract

A tunable wavelength conversion of coherent signals light based on the four-wave mixing (FWM) in the photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is demonstrated in this paper. The phase match condition of four-wave mixing in photonic crystal fiber has been discussed, and the wavelength range that satisfies the phase match condition has been summarized. By use of 20- meter photonic crystal fiber whose zero dispersion wavelength is at about 1550 nm and whose nonlinear coefficient at 1550 nm is ~11 (Wkm)-1, tunable wavelength conversion is achieved. The measured maximum conversion efficiency of 1554.42 nm and 1537.3 nm coherent signals light is -15 dB and -7 dB respectively, and the 3dB conversion bandwidth is over ~50nm.
