Abstract

This paper reports on the first demonstration of 2.5 Gbps and 10 Gbps operation of a new InP MZI-SOA all-optical wavelength converter with independent interferometer phase control monolithically integrated with a widely-tunable SGDBR laser. We show a 35nm output tuning range with less than 0.8dB power penalty at –10dBm input at 2.5Gbps NRZ and error-free operation with –5dBm input power at 10Gbps NRZ.
