Abstract

A study of the relative performance of an integrated semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)/distributed feedback laser wavelength converter that can operate with negative penalties at 10 Gb/s rates is conducted. It is found that reduction of more than 25 times in required input powers are achieved when compared with laser or SOA converters.
