Abstract

Wavelength conversion of 40 Gb/s and 80 Gb/s return-to-zero on-off-keying signals using a quantum-dot semiconductor optical amplifier in combination with a delay interferometer as subsequent filter is demonstrated. The performance of the 80 Gb/s wavelength converter measured in terms of the bit-error ratio demonstrated here is the highest reported up to now for quantum-dot semiconductor optical amplifiers. The typical fast gain dynamics manifests itself in open eye diagrams of the converted signal. The slow phase dynamics of the carrier reservoir however induces severe patterning and requires compensation. Adaptation of the free-spectral range of the delay interferometer is necessary in order to mitigate these phase effects and to achieve error-free wavelength conversion.

Fig. 7

Sketch of the signal processing by the QD SOA and the DI. The QD SOA induces XGM and slow XPM. The non-recovered phase results in patterning effects, if the FSR equals the bit rate. Wavelength conversion with low pattering due to compensation of phase patterning is feasible at large FSR values. The dotted line represents the delayed copy of the solid trace.
