Ultrafast all-optical switching was experimentally demonstrated using four-wave mixing in an SOA. Two pump pulses with different wavelengths and timings were used for 12 switching. The cross-correlation measurements of FWM signals using a short reference pulse show the high-speed switching capability for wavelength routing in OTDM networks.
