All-optical wavelength conversion plays a major role in providing the wavelength flexibility in optical communication networks. All-optical wavelength converters (AOWCs) based on cross-gain modulation (XGM) and cross-phase modulation (XPM) in semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) have attracted considerable research interest. In this paper, we propose a novel scheme for cascaded wavelength conversion based on cross-gain modulation and cross-phase modulation in SOAs. The wavelength conversion… CONTINUE READING
