We compare theoretically the performance capabilities of Fabry–Perot and Gires–Tournois resonators when used for adiabatic wavelength conversion. It is shown that the Gires–Tournois device will exhibit superior performance and is able to convert the wavelength of optical pulses with > 74 % efficiency while nearly preserving their temporal duration.
