Abstract

All-optical wavelength conversion is demonstrated, based on cross-bias modulation induced by the photocurrent that results from absorbing the incoming optical carrier directly in an electroabsorption modulator connected to a series resistor. The wavelength conversion was achieved with an efficiency /spl ges/0.25 over a probe wavelength range of 1540-1560 nm.
