Paper Abstract

Optical wavelength conversion will be a key function in photonic networks. Therefore the development of effective and practical all-optical wavelength converters is subject to considerable attention. Here, the application is outlined and the performance of wavelength conversion by semiconductor optical amplifiers reviewed.
