Abstract

We demonstrate simultaneous four-channel wavelength conversion of 50-Gbit/s non-return-to-zero differential quadrature-shift-keying signals with a channel spacing of 100-GHz using a quantum-dot semiconductor optical amplifier. Error-free operations with low-power penalties are successfully achieved with various channel configurations.
