Abstract
Tunable four-wave mixing (FWM) wavelength conversion based on semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)-based fiber ring laser is analyzed theoretically and experimentally. Theoretical models for SOA-based fiber ring laser and FWM wavelength conversion are established. Output characteristics of SOA fiber ring laser with input signal and without input signal, and conversion efficiency versus wavelength shift are experimental measured and theoretical calculated, experimental results are coincidence with theoretical simulated results finely. Tunable wavelength conversion at 10Gb/s with 32nm tuning range is demonstrated. Results show that the exploitation of erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) in fiber ring laser is helpful for tuning range widening and input dynamic range increasing.
