We demonstrate a narrow band phase sensitive amplifier in the pump degenerate configuration which employs ps pump pulses. Control of the amplifier bandwidth is achieved via changes of the pump spectral width. A phase sensitive gain between -6 and 6 decibels, with an overall system gain of 28dB was demonstrated.

High efficiency and high output power fiber-optic parametric amplifier.

A nearly complete pump depletion of 99.92% in a single-pumped FOPA is experimentally demonstrated and a high signal output power is presented, corresponding to a power conversion efficiency of 53%, believed to be the highest efficiency ever reported for an FOPA.

Detailed characterization of afiber-optic parametric amplifier in phase-sensitive and phase-insensitive operation.

A single-pumped, non-degenerate phase-sensitive parametric amplifier with a precise control of phase and amplitude of the in-going waves is experimentally demonstrated and a departure from the theoretical maximum attenuation as the gain increases is observed and explained.

We numerically analyze phase-sensitive parametric amplification of a multi-pixel text image and demonstrate that ∼10-dB gain is achievable with ∼10-kW total pump peak power, which makes it compatible

Fiber optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification in the femtosecond regime.

We study parametric amplification in optical fibers for chirped-pulse femtosecond laser systems. Compared to conventional OPCPA operating in bulk crystals, the fiber geometry offers a greater

Phase-sensitive amplification of light in a χ(3) photonic chip using a dispersion engineered chalcogenide ridge waveguide.

By spectrally slicing pump, signal and idler waves from a single pulsed source, it is able to observe 9.9 dB of on-chip phase-sensitive extinction with a signal-degenerate dual pump four-wave mixing architecture in good agreement with numerical simulations.

Phase sensitive amplification with noise figure below the 3 dB quantum limit using CW pumped PPLN waveguide.

The noise figure (NF) of a phase sensitive amplifier (PSA) based on a periodically poled LiNbO3 (PPLN) waveguide was evaluated in the optical and electrical domains and the low noise characteristics were confirmed by the improved sensitivity.

Towards ultrasensitive optical links enabled by low-noise phase-sensitive amplifiers

Optical phase-sensitive amplifiers (PSAs) are known to be capable, in principle, of realizing noiseless amplification and improving the signal-to-noise-ratio of optical links by 3 dB compared to

The proposed scheme offers tunable delay in the presence of gain and with a bandwidth which is sufficiently wide to process digital data streams at tens of Gbit/s rates as well as picoseconds pulses.
