Wavelength Conversion Technologies This paper reports a review of the different technologies used for wavelength conversion in wavelength-division multiplexed networks. The strengths and the weaknesses of the competing technologies, including optoelectronic wavelength conversion, four-wave mixing, difference frequency generation, cross-gain and cross-phase modulation in semiconductor optical amplifiers, are stressed with regard to conversion speed, transparency and regeneration of the converted signal. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Photonic Network Communications Springer Journals

Abstract

This paper reports a review of the different technologies used for wavelength conversion in wavelength-division multiplexed networks. The strengths and the weaknesses of the competing technologies, including optoelectronic wavelength conversion, four-wave mixing, difference frequency generation, cross-gain and cross-phase modulation in semiconductor optical amplifiers, are stressed with regard to conversion speed, transparency and regeneration of the converted signal.
