Abstract

We present the first microring-resonator-assisted wavelength converter employing a semiconductor optical amplifier and a tunable, Si$_{3}$N$_{4}$–SiO$_{2}$ microring-resonator-reconfigurable optical add–drop multiplexer. We demonstrate inverted, noninverted, and wavelength-division-multiplexing-enabled wavelength conversion with low power penalties.
