Abstract

The first interferometric wavelength converter with an integrated CW source is shown to operate with 0.5–0.8 dB penalty at 2.5 Gb/s for wavelength conversion and same-wavelength operation. Fiber coupled conversion gain of up to 7.5 dB is achieved. The chirp parameter α is measured to be 2.
