All-optical wavelength conversion (WC) of advanced modulation formats could have a significant role in the next generation of high-capacity optical networks. Four-wave mixing (FWM) occurring within a semiconductor optical amplifier is one of the most advantageous methods to implement all-optical WC. We demonstrate the WC of 16-quadrature amplitude… CONTINUE READING
