In this investigation, we propose and investigate a wavelength converter by using a cost-effective and uncooled TO-can package reflective semiconductor optical amplifier with ∼ 1.2 GHz bandwidth. In this measurement, the converted data rate can support 1.25-10 Gbit/s on-off keying modulation rates by using the cross gain modulation technique.
