Abstract

We propose and demonstrate experimentally a novel scheme to realize all-optical up-conversion and wavelength-conversion based on the bi-directional-pump four-wave mixing (FWM) effect in high nonlinear fibers (HNLFs). The pump is generated with optical carrier suppression in a Mach-Zehnder modulator. The two pumps are always parallel and phase-locked. A balance-detection photo-detector for optical signal detection is employed with 3-dB improvement in power penalty. The 2.5-Gb/s signals are transmitted successfully over the 25-km single-mode fiber in 30-GHz radio over fiber (ROF) systems.
