Abstract

We present, for the first time to our knowledge, the use of a dispersion-shifted soft-glass holey fiber (HF) in a Kerr-shutter configuration. Wavelength conversion of 10-Gb/s data pulses is achieved in the C-band using just 2.1 m of a lead-silicate HF with a nonlinear parameter gamma of 164 W-1 ldr km-1. The low dispersion and the short length of the fiber enable short switching windows to be realized
