Theoretical Analysis of Wavelength Conversion in Fiber Bragg Grating External Cavity Lasers


Article Preview

A new theoretical model for wavelength conversion based on XGM in fiber grating external cavity lasers is presented. The expression of mutual coupling parameter βm which indicates the efficiency of the wavelength conversion.was introduced in the model and and confirmed by numerical simulation. The theoretical analysis showed that the mutual coupling parameter βm is decided by intensity and frequency interval of CW light and the IM light, and the simulation results showed that the larger βm was, the better wavelength conversion was.
