Abstract

The development of a high-performance hybrid integration platform is demonstrated using an all-optical wavelength converter based on an integrated semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI). The device structure, transfer functions, power penalties and regenerative properties are presented for data rates up to 10 Gb/s.
