Abstract

We propose a novel analytical model for the characterization of fiber cross-phase modulation (XPM) in ultrafast all-optical fiber wavelength converters, operating at modulation frequencies higher than 1 THz . The model is used to compare the XPM frequency limitations of a conventional and a highly nonlinear dispersion shifted fiber (HN-DSF) and a bismuth oxide-based fiber, introducing the XPM bandwidth as a design parameter. It is shown that the HN-DSF presents the highest XPM bandwidth, above 1 THz , making it the most appropriate for ultrafast wavelength conversion.
