All-optical SOA-based non-inverted wavelength conversion of 80Gbit/s by using a structure which consists of a SOA and a followed optical filter is demonstrated. Result illustrates that SOA-based wavelength converter has a weak nonlinear performance if the optical pulse with a wide spectrum. Moreover, a non-inverted 40Gbit/s and non-inverted 80Gbit/s All-optical wavelength conversion using this simple structure with a narrow spectrum are also demonstrated. Result shows shat the wavelength conversion at 40Gbit/s can be easily achieved, the wavelength converted eye diagram is clear. However, the eye diagram is not very clear at 80Gbit/s due to the performance of filter.
