Wavelength conversion is recognized as an important function in future broadband-wavelength-division-multiplexing lightwave systems.1 Wavelength conversion by four-wave mixing in semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) is an attractive approach for realizing this function since it is inherently transparent to the bit rate.
