Abstract

All-optical control of the phase-matching condition in four-wave mixing (FWM) processes is demonstrated using the Brillouin slow-light effect in optical fibers. A counterpropagating stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) pump has been used to control the phase velocity of the FWM pump in a wavelength conversion scheme. Both experimetal results and theoretical simulations show an SBS-controlled 20 ‚ÄČ dB difference on the wavelength conversion efficiency.
