N2 - All-optical wavelength conversion based on multi-section semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) in a symmetrical Mach-Zehnder interferometer (SMZI) is modeled for use in optical networks. It incorporates an enhanced SOA model that is implemented using the time domain transfer matrix approach and hence the overall numerical model determines simultaneously the wavelength and gain parameters for the wavelength converter. The overall model accurately predicts the optimal conditions for the SMZI arrangement in order to achieve the best results for the chirp, the phase inversion and the converted probe signal power. It is also demonstrated that large chirp and mismatch of the phase inversion reduces the eye opening ratio (EOR) which can seriously affect the performance of the wavelength converter to be used as a subsystem component in all-optical networks.
