We propose and demonstrate a novel single to multi-wavelength converter using Fabry-Perot Laser Diode (FP-LD) with linear optical amplifier (LOA), which is based on cross-gain modulation (XGM) effect. This can convert an input signal to many wavelengths simultaneously for reconfigurable wavelength conversion in optical cross connect (OXC) and broadcasting in optical access network. Multi-modes of FP-LD were used for probe signals and LOA was used for cross gain modulation medium effect. The separation of FP-LD modes spacing is fixed as 0.8 nm to satisfy International Telecommunications Union (ITU) grid.
