We demonstrate a method of minimizing the wavelength sensitivity of the all-optical bit-pattern recognition relying on a passive optical correlator. We accomplish all-optical 40-Gb/s, 8-bit pattern recognition with much reduced wavelength sensitivity by combining a wavelength converter front-end and a passive optical correlator.
