We propose and experimentally demonstrate an all-optical broadband wavelength conversion scheme with simultaneous power amplification based on a pump-modulated fiber optic parametric amplifier (FOPA). All-optical tunable wavelength conversion from one to two wavelengths was achieved with ≥13 dB extinction ratio and <2.7-dB power penalty, accompanied by a high (≥37 dB) and flat ( 3 dB variation) FOPA gain spectrum over 47 nm.
