A polarisation-insensitive wavelength converter using four-wave mixing (FWM) in a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) has been realised. The converter uses a novel polarisation-diversity scheme which requires only one SOA. Polarisation-insensitive wavelength conversion (<1 dB polarisation sensitivity) and a near constant (<3 dB variation) conversion efficiency was achieved over a range of 26 nm
