    Abstract

    Broadcasting functionality using cross-phase modulation in a nonlinear optical loop mirror utilizing 100-m highly nonlinear (HNL) photonic crystal fiber (PCF) as nonlinear element is demonstrated. This work presents entirely PCF-based network functionalities including broadcasting, transmission, and wavelength conversion. Broadcasting on four channels, transmission of one selected channel through one partially dispersion compensated 10.4-km PCF transmission link and wavelength conversion using four-wave mixing in a 50-m HNL-PCF at the ingress of the target subnetwork have been successfully demonstrated.
