REVIEW OF CONFIGURATIONS AND APPLICATIONS OF FIBER OPTICAL PARAMETRIC AMPLIFIERS
Publication Date : 01/08/2010
A review of the two basic configurations of Fiber optical parametric amplifiers and their typical applications is presented. As these types of amplifiers possess high gain and low noise at arbitrary wavelength, they could be enablers to increase overall capacities in optical communication. The presence of an idler at the output of each signal from an optical parametric amplifier can be utilized for making very wideband wavelength converters. Fiber optical parametric amplifiers can also be used for linear signal amplification, all – optical signal sampling, optical pulse generation, etc.
