Abstract

The dual-pump all-optical wavelength conversion based on a four-wave mixing (FWM) in a high-nonlinear dispersion shifted fiber (HNL-DSF) is demonstrated experimentally. The polarization sensitivity of the wavelength converter based on this dual-pump figuration is investigated experimentally and theoretically. The experimental results indicate that the wavelength-conversion configuration with copolarization pumps shows the smallest polarization sensitivity. A model of the beating-wave modulation from the dynamic wave equation is erected to explain the experimental phenomena, and the theoretical analyses agree well with the experimental results.
