The effectiveness and possible applications of all-optical wavelength conversion using optical fibers are described. Several types of ultra-broad and ultra-fast wavelength conversion using highly-nonlinear fiber are shown. Over 70 nm conversion band by four-wave mixing, 500-fs pulse trains conversion by cross-phase-modulation-based nonlinear optical loop mirror and time-based optical add-drop multiplexing for 160 Gbit/s signal using wavelength conversion by supercontinuum are successfully demonstrated.
