Yeo, Kwok Shien and Mahamd Adikan, Faisal Rafiq and Mokhtar, Makhfudzah and Hitam, Salasiah and Mahdi, Mohd Adzir (2013) Fiber optical parametric amplifier with double-pass pump configuration. Optics Express, 21 (25). pp. 31623-31631. ISSN 1094-4087


Characteristics of fiber optical parametric amplifier (FOPA) with double-pass pump configuration are experimentally investigated. The double-pass pump FOPA exhibits more than two-fold steeper gain slope in comparison to the conventional FOPA due to elongation of effective fiber length. In the L-band amplification band, a secondary idler is generated and used as the transmission signal in lieu of the original L-band signal. Gain measurement and bit error rate experiments are performed on the secondary idler and the results prove the usability of secondary idler, which is potentially useful for distribution networks.
