Paper Abstract

In this paper, the effects of walk-off in NOLM-based wavelength conversion is analyzed, as well as group velocity dispersion (GVD) and self-phase modulation (SPM). Fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) are introduced into the NOLM, serving as narrow bandpass filters. Corresponding coupled mode nonlinear Schroedinger equations (CMNSEs) and equations of the filter transmission window are given. Meanwhile, the optimal parameters of the system. Finally, time-resolved numerical analysis of our scheme is performed. And it reveals that the introduction of FBGs has improved the performance of NOLM-based wavelength conversion.
