Abstract

Parametric interaction in a single-mode fiber between a carrier and its two sidebands was observed. This interaction leads to gain or loss in the two sidebands depending on the relative phase between them and is approximately linearly dependent on the carrier power. A maximum gain of 1.4 was observed at a carrier power of 11 mW.
