Polarization-insensitive wavelength conversion based on four-wave mixing for 112-Gb/s polarization- multiplexed return-to-zero quadrature phase-shift keying signals (PolMux-RZ-QPSK) with digital coherent detection is experimentally demonstrated. The dual-pumps always have the same polarization direction and fixed frequency spacing because they are generated by the optical carrier suppression technique. The conversion efficiency at different pumping powers and signal wavelengths has also been investigated. A tuning range of a signal wavelength of wider than 18 nm is realized with the same conversion efficiency in this proposed architecture. There is no obvious optical signal-to-noise ratio penalty for the converted 112-Gb/s PolMux-RZ-QPSK signals.
