Various nonlinear optical processes appear in single-mode optical fibers at low-power levels due to the long interaction length. Among those processes, stimulated Raman scattering and four-photon mixing are efficient methods for the amplification of optical signals.1–3 Such direct optical amplification in fibers may become important for long-distance high-speed optical signal transmission.
