Phase-preserving parametric wavelength conversion to SWIR band in highly nonlinear dispersion stabilized fiber

Opt Express. 2013 May 6;21(9):11415-24. doi: 10.1364/OE.21.011415.


The first successful translation of a phase modulated optical signal over 80 THz, from the near infrared to the short-wave infrared (SWIR) band is demonstrated. A signal, phase-modulated at 10 Gbps, was received in an error-free manner in the SWIR(1.7-2.2 μm) band. A new class of highly nonlinear fiber with reduced dispersion fluctuation was utilized as the platform for this phase-preserving distant parametric conversion.
