All-optical wavelength conversion is demonstrated at 40 Gbit/s, using a single SOA and a bandpass filter. The scheme is very simple, requires a record low switching energy of ∼3 fJ, and preserves data format and polarity.

    We demonstrate that broad-area vertical-cavity semiconductor optical amplifiers allow for wavelength conversion at 2.5 Gb/s via cross-gain modulation (XGM). XGM is reached with a saturation beam of only 1.5 mW over an optical bandwidth of 0.7 nm (215 GHz). Depending on the wavelengths of the...

    In this paper, an analytical analysis is made on a periodic bandpass filter formed by a two-cavity etalon incorporated into a Sagnac loop interferometer. The general optimum conditions for a quasi-flat-top spectrum and a ripple-free group-delay response are derived. Our results show that by...
