Abstract

We have realized the monolithical integration of an all-optical Mach-Zehnder interferometric wavelength converter and a 4-channel digitally-tunable laser as CW source. The InP-based device operates in the 1.5 µm window and shows excellent static extinction ratios of over 20 dB in the converted wavelength and an extinction ratio improvement of 13 dB. BER measurements of the converter in combination with an external CW-source showed a 1 dB improvement in the received power sensitivity at 2.5 Gbit/s. In addition we present the analysis of the dynamic behavior of the integrated device. It explains how the performance beyond 0.5 Gbit/s can be improved.
