This work presents a novel wavelength conversion scheme, differential cross-polarization modulation (DXPoM), using an extra birefringence delay to enhance the performance of the conventional cross-polarization modulation. Simulation and experimental results confirm that the predicted performance is enhanced. Using the proposed scheme improves rise time by over 300%, reduces timing jitter by 50%, and increases extinction ratio by 9%.
