Abstract
We prove that the tuning range of a one-pump fiber parametric wavelength converter based on degenerate four-wave mixing can be maximized by selecting fibers with appropriate zero dispersion wavelength and high-order dispersion coefficients. The maximal tuning range is proportional to the cube root of the product of the pump power and fiber nonlinear coefficient. If the effects of fourth-order dispersion are utilized, the tuning range can increase dramatically.
