We present the experimental demonstration of broadband four-wave mixing in a 2.5 cm-long segment of AsSe Chalcogenide microstructured fiber. The parametric mixing was driven by a continuous-wave pump compatible with data signal wavelength conversion. Four-wave mixing products over more than 70 nm on the anti-stoke side of the pump were measured for 345 mW of pump power and 1.5 dBm of signal power. The ultrafast signal processing capability was verified through wavelength conversion of 1.4 ps pulses at 8 GHz repetition rate.
