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 n2/Aeff 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.
