Phase-sensitive amplification in a fiber.


Phase-sensitive amplification (PSA) has the potential to improve significantly the performance of optical communication systems. PSA is known to occur in chi(2) devices, and in a fiber interferometer, which is an example of a chi(3) device. In this report some four-wave mixing processes are described, which produce PSA directly in fibers.
