Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate optical parametric chirped pulse amplification for the first time (to our knowledge) in a completely integrated all-fiber optical system. A single chirped fiber Bragg grating, achieving both the stretching and compression stages, is combined with a cw-pumped fiber optical parametric amplifier. As a proof of principle, we demonstrate the amplification of picosecond Fourier-transform-limited pulses at 1550nm.
