NOLM-based wavelength conversion with FBG band-pass filter for optical packet switching
Min Zhang, Peida Ye, Fan Zhang, Yongpeng Zhao, and Jian Wang
Chinese Optics Letters , Vol.01 , Issue 01 , PP.3-3(2003)

Keywords(OCIS Code)
190.2620 (frequency conversion), 050.2770 (gratings), 060.2340 (fiber optics components), 060.4370 (nonlinear optics, fibers), 060.4510 (optical communications).

Nonlinear-optical-loop-mirror-based wavelength conversion is studied in details. A set of two-phase-shifted Bragg gratings are introduced into the coverter, serving as a narrow band-pass filter to remove new frequencies generated by walk-off and to compensate the dispersion. Numerical simulations are performed to validate our method. The results show that the converted pulses after the filter are reshaped and, sometimes, even compressed.
