Abstract

Wavelength conversion in the 1.55-μm regime was achieved for the first time in an integrated SOA/DFB laser by modulating the output power of the laser with a light beam of a different wavelength externally injected into the SOA section. In terms of speed, response times as low as 13ps were observed, though at the expense of reduced extinction ratio. Generally, these results indicate that operation in the 10s of GB/s should be possible.
