All-optical wavelength conversion using the TE mode injection locking and TM-mode
absorption null of a Fabry-Perot laser diode is proposed. By varying pump power, the change
of probe power over 20 dB is obtained. Bit error rate measurements at 2.5 Gbps were
performed and power penalties of 2 dB and 6 dB was observed, respectively, for noninverting
and inverting wavelength conversion.
