Wavelength conversion is a key WDM function which is used to avoid wavelength blocking, thus allowing greater flexibility in the network design. Wavelength conversion of an intensity modulated signal can be simply achieved by employing cross-phase modulation (XPM) on a CW beam placed at the desired wavelength, normally followed by a band-pass filter and a narrowband notch filter to reject the pump and the carrier frequency respectively.

Abstract

Wavelength conversion is a key WDM function which is used to avoid wavelength blocking, thus allowing greater flexibility in the network design. Wavelength conversion of an intensity modulated signal can be simply achieved by employing cross-phase modulation (XPM) on a CW beam placed at the desired wavelength, normally followed by a band-pass filter and a narrowband notch filter to reject the pump and the carrier frequency respectively.
