Paper Abstract

All-optical wavelength conversion is one of the key technologies in all optical signal processing. A wavelength conversion technology based on semiconductor optical amplifier nonlinear polarization rotation effect is proposed. By theoretical analysis and simulation, we achieve a 320Gbit/s signal wavelength conversion. We show that inverted and non-inverted wavelength conversion can be realized. However, the ER and Q-factor are improved.
