A systematic study of the effects of polarization-mode dispersion (PMD) on broadband and narrowband single-pump fiber parametric amplifiers is realized through numerical solutions of the equations governing the interaction. The nonlinear polarization rotation is shown to be a relevant effect that can increase gain randomness when it mixes with PMD. In… CONTINUE READING
