Polarization insensitive wavelength conversion in a low-birefringence SiGe waveguide

Polarization insensitive wavelength conversion in a low-birefringence SiGe waveguide
Polarization insensitive wavelength conversion in a low-birefringence SiGe waveguide
We report the first demonstration of a single-pass dual-orthogonal-pump FWM-based wavelength conversion scheme in a silicon-based waveguide. The silicon germanium (SiGe) waveguide used was designed to exhibit strong TE/TM mode similarity across a broad wavelength range as well as a large nonlinear coefficient . A polarization dependent loss (PDL) of just 0.42 dB was measured and the conversion of 40 Gb/s DPSK signals was demonstrated with 1.5 dB power penalty at a bit error ratio (BER) of 10-9 .

Abstract

We report the first demonstration of a single-pass dual-orthogonal-pump FWM-based wavelength conversion scheme in a silicon-based waveguide. The silicon germanium (SiGe) waveguide used was designed to exhibit strong TE/TM mode similarity across a broad wavelength range as well as a large nonlinear coefficient . A polarization dependent loss (PDL) of just 0.42 dB was measured and the conversion of 40 Gb/s DPSK signals was demonstrated with 1.5 dB power penalty at a bit error ratio (BER) of 10-9 .
