Abstract

We demonstrate a FWM based wavelength converter using a 15 m, highly nonlinear HF with a high SBS threshold. Error-free, efficient wavelength conversion of 10 Gbit/s NRZ signal over a ~10 nm bandwidth is reliably achieved. Our 15 m HF has a nonlinearity coefficient Gamma ~70 (±10) W-1.km-1 and an SBS threshold of more than 130 mW. The high SBS threshold is achieved by applying structural variation to the HF along its length during the fabrication process. No modulational instability induced intensity noise on the converted signals is observed due to the normal dispersion of the HF.
