Continuously wavelength-tunable all-optical clock recovery is achieved using an all-fiber parametric oscillator. With 2.9 ps input data pulses, the system is expected to be scalable to data rates above 100 Gbps. The recovered wavelength can be continuously tuned to demultiplex any wavelength-division-multiplexed channel over the erbium-doped fiber amplifier bandwidth. Also, with a proper setting of the intracavity fiber polarization controller, the clock recovery system is insensitive to the polarization of the input data pulses.
