Design, fabrication, and characterization of monolithically integrated widely tunable all-optical wavelength converters in InP is reported. The devices are based on the SGDBR laser integrated with different MZI-SOA wavelength converters. Error-free wavelength conversion at 2.5 Gbps was demonstrated over 50 nm input and 22 nm output wavelength range. Static operation, extinction ratio enhancement, signal reamplification, dynamic range, and chirp properties were characterized as well.
