Abstract

Wavelength conversion using semiconductor optical amplifiers in a Mach—Zehnder configuration is analyzed. It is shown that the wavelength converter has strong influence on the intensity noise of the converted channel. Ways of improving the noise performance of the wavelength converter are discussed.
