Paper Abstract

Frequency conversion using highly non-degenerate four-wave mixing is reported in InAs/GaAs quantum-dot Fabry- Perot lasers. In order to compress the spontaneous emission noise, the laser is optically injection-locked. Under proper injection conditions, the beating between the injected light frequency and the cavity resonant frequency dominates the dynamic behavior and enhances a carrier modulation resonance at frequencies higher than the relaxation oscillation frequency. Conversion efficiencies as high as -12 dB associated to a large optical signal-to-noise ratio of 36 dB are reported. The conversion bandwidth is extended up to 2.1 THz for down-conversion (resp. 3.2 THz for up-conversion) with a quasi-symmetrical response between up- and down-converted signals.
