We report the first experimental observation of four-wave mixing (FWM) in single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) deposited on a Dshaped fiber. FWM-based tunable wavelength conversion of a 10 Gb/s nonreturn-to-zero signal is demonstrated using a 5-centimeter-long CNT-deposited D-shaped fiber. A power penalty of 4 dB power is obtained in the 10 Gb/s biterror- rate measurements.
