Abstract

Theory shows that near-complete pump depletion can be obtained in uniform fiber-optic parametric amplifiers (OPA’s) for a particular phase-matching condition. We have demonstrated 92% pump depletion in a cw fiber OPA, with a 200-mW pump at 1560  nm in an 11-km-long dispersion-shifted fiber.
