Abstract
The gain optimization characteristics of a one-pump fiber-optical parametric amplifier with an optical band-pass filter (OBPF) reducing the idler wave is investigated numerically. The phase mismatching is compensated, thus both the maximum gain and the gain bandwidth are optimized with the OBPF inserted in, and the flatter gain can be obtained; meanwhile, the conversion efficiency of the pump power to the signal power is increased. The influence of filter attenuation on the gain is also discussed. It is shown that, by properly selecting the parameters of the fiber, signal wave, pump wave, and filter, the optimized gain can be obtained, which is extremely useful for the optical communication systems.
