Abstract

Bandwidth and peak efficiency are enhanced for wavelength conversion based on induced modulation instability by use of dispersion-shifted fiber in which the nonlinearity (<i>n</i><sub>2</sub>/<i>A</i><sub>eff</sub>) is enhanced by a factor of ~4.5 over that of conventional dispersion-shifted fiber. We experimentally obtain a peak conversion efficiency as high as 28 dB over a 40-nm bandwidth with 600 mW of peak pump power. Considerations for further enhancement of fiber-based wavelength conversion are also discussed.
