We demonstrate a four-wave-mixing based wavelength converter using a 15-m highly nonlinear holey fiber (HF) with a high stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) threshold. Error-free efficient wavelength conversion of 10-Gb/s nonreturn-to-zero signal over a /spl sim/10-nm bandwidth is reliably achieved. Our 15-m HF has a nonlinearity coefficient /spl gamma//spl sim/70(/spl plusmn/10) W/sup -1//spl middot/km/sup -1/ and an SBS threshold of more than 130 mW. The high SBS threshold is achieved by applying structural variation to the HF along its length during the fabrication process. No modulational-instability-induced intensity noise on the converted signals is observed due to the normal dispersion of the HF.
