Optical fibers with index profiles that are optimized for broadband double pumped parametric amplifiers are thoroughly investigated. The analysis includes random variations in the radii of the profile along the fiber length (introduced in the fabrication process). By optimizing the fourth order dispersion parameter and the effective area we obtain fiber… (More)
