Abstract

Dispersion shifted fibre (DSF) and semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) are two of the most promising media for optical phase conjugation and wavelength conversion using FWM [1,2]. These are key functions in future high bitrate transmission systems for dispersion compensation using MSSI [3,4] and switching in WDM networks. Key issues in FWM are the conversion efficiency, especially the relatively low efficiency in DSF [5], and polarisation independence. The efficiency has been increased by using both novel fibres [6] and SOAs [7]. Polarisation independent FWM has been demonstrated in both SOA [8] and in DSF [9], using two orthogonally polarised pumps. With this technique, 40 Gbit/s 102 km MSSI transmission has been demonstrated using SOA-based conjugator [10]. However this configuration results in high complexity and component count. this Letter, we report the use of a novel optical phase conjugator configuration using inline fibre distributed feedback (DFB) lasers[11] in 20 and 40 Gbit/s system experiments.
