Paper Abstract

All-optical wavelength conversion based on four-wave mixing (FWM) is one of the key techniques for building dynamic optical networks. In this paper, the cavity enhancing effect of the residual F-P cavity mode on the non-degenerated four-wave mixing (NDFWM) in a distributed-feedback semiconductor laser diode (DFB-LD) have been investigated both experimentally and theoretically. The conversion efficiency of NDFWM is obtained at small or large frequency detuning range. The results show that the NDFWM can be enhanced obviously when the probe wavelength matches one of the F-P cavity modes, and the high conversion efficiency can be achieved even if the frequency detuning between the injection probe frequency and free-running frequency of the DFB-LD is up to THz.
