Abstract
The efficiency of ultrabroad-band wavelength conversion using orthogonal-pump four-wave mixing in a semiconductor optical amplifier is measured for the wavelength shifts from 1500 to 1640 nm. The variation of conversion efficiency is <0.9 dB over the wavelength range from 1530 to 1560 nm (C-band), and <4.5 dB over the wavelength range from 1560 to 1610 nm (L-band). The maximum conversion efficiency is about -8.7 dB.
