Abstract

Wavelength conversion of optical signals as a result of refraction through a moving interface in traveling-wave electro-optic phase modulators has been analyzed. The connection between wavelength conversion and phase modulation with velocity mismatch has been investigated both analytically and by use of computer simulation. The configuration of a device performing the conversion is proposed, and the operating requirements are determined. Devices based on the described technique are especially promising for wavelength conversion in wavelength-division multiplexing applications and possess several advantages over competing all-optical methods.
