We experimentally demonstrate wavelength conversion of both single polarization 40-Gbuad 16-QAM and 20-Gbuad polarization-division-multiplexed (PDM) 16-QAM in a PPLN waveguide. A polarization insensitive scheme utilizing bi-directional operation is employed. The power penalty as a function of pump power is also investigated and a minimum conversion penalty of ∼0.5 dB is obtained.
