We explore theoretically the feasibility of using frequency conversion by sum- or difference-frequency generation, enabled by three-wave-mixing, for selectively multiplexing orthogonal input waveforms that overlap in time and frequency. Such a process would enable a drop device for use in a transparent optical network using temporally orthogonal waveforms… (More)
In this paper we consider frequency translation enabled by Bragg scattering, a four-wave mixing process. First we introduce the theoretical background of the Green function formalism and the Schmidt decomposition. Next the Green functions for the low-conversion regime are derived perturbatively in… (More)
Four-wave mixing in the form of Bragg scattering (BS) has been predicted to enable quantum noise-less frequency conversion by analytic quantum approaches. Using a semi-classical description of quantum noise that accounts for loss and stimulated and spontaneous Raman scattering, which are not currently described in existing quantum approaches, we quantify… (More)
Three- or four-wave mixing can convert a single-photon wave packet to a new frequency. By tailoring the shapes of the pump(s), one can achieve add/drop functionality for different temporally orthogonal wave packets.
We consider quantum frequency conversion using four-wave mixing Bragg scattering and the prospects for multiplexing using the temporal modes.We find that there is an optimal strength parameter, but that the fiber length is less critical.
Nondegenerate four-wave mixing driven by two pulsed pumps transfers the quantum state of an input signal pulse to an output idler pulse, which is a frequency-translated and reshaped version of the signal. By varying the pump shapes appropriately, one can connect signal and idler pulses with arbitrary durations and shapes. This process enables a variety of… (More)
In this paper, we consider the effects of nonlinear phase modulation on frequency conversion by four-wave mixing (Bragg scattering) in the low-conversion regime. We derive the Green functions for this process using the time-domain collision method, for partial collisions, in which the four fields interact at the beginning or the end of the fiber, and… (More)
We analyse frequency conversion by Bragg scattering numerically including Raman scattering. The frequency configuration that performs the best under influence of Raman noise results in 95% conversion over a 3.25 THz bandwidth with a 2.5-dB noise figure.
