We report a new all-optical wavelength conversion scheme based on a self-seeded Fabry-Perot laser diode with a chirped fiber grating as the external cavity. This converter can convert the wavelength of input optical signals into 14 discrete wavelengths with external RF modulation. We successfully demonstrate all-optical wavelength conversion at 10 Mbps.
