Abstract

We report a nonlinear signal processing system based on a SiGe waveguide suitable for high spectral efficiency data signals. Four-wave-mixing (FWM)-based wavelength conversion of 10-Gbaud 16-Quadrature amplitude modulated (QAM) and 64-QAM signals is demonstrated with less than -10-dB conversion efficiency (CE), 36-dB idler optical signal-to-noise ratio (OSNR), negligible bit error ratio (BER) penalty and a 3-dB conversion bandwidth exceeding 30nm. The SiGe device was CW-pumped and operated in a passive scheme without giving rise to any two-photon absorption (TPA) effects.
