Abstract

Interferometric Optical Wavelength Converters (IOWCs) provide wavelength conversion functionality at high bit rates, and give low chip and enhanced extinction ratio compared with Cross-Gain wavelength converters. In paper, a numerical simulation is conducted to assess the noise performance of IOWC and its potential for cascading. The details of the experiment and the results obtained are presented.
