We present an experimental study of a systematic design procedure for achieving high bandwidth wavelength conversion with low ripple in a fiber parametric device with a single tunable pump. We find good agreement with established theory. Fourth order dispersion and fluctuations in the zero-dispersion wavelength have little effect on final conversion bandwidth. Strategies for ripple reduction and pump filtering in a practical device are proposed.
