Abstract

A wavelength conversion scheme based on a fiber Raman converter is proposed, in which an externally injected high power pump laser and the associated Stokes laser are used to assist the Raman conversion process of signal light coded with optical information. Because the Raman gain spectrum in fibers is extremely broad, a wavelength conversion device with wide-range tunability is feasible. We numerically demonstrate that wavelength conversion from 1.31 to 1.42 m can be realized using a fiber Raman converter at up to 10 Gb/s with an efficiency of 18%. It is also demonstrated that wide range conversion from 1.31 to 1.55 m for optical fiber communication is feasible at up to 5 Gb/s when the fiber Raman converters are cascaded twice.
