Wavelength conversion by cavity-enhanced injection-locked four-wavemixing in a fiber-Bragg-grating coupled diode laser


Four-wave mixing (FWM) in a fiber-Bragg-grating (FBG) coupled semiconductor laser is investigated. We show that a large resonance enhancement of the FWM conversion efficiency can be obtained when the laser cavity is injection-locked by the converted signal, and apply this technique to the wavelength conversion of 1-Gb/s modulated signals. Furthermore, we discuss how the spectral width of these resonances can be increased to make this approach suitable to higher bit rates.
