Abstract

On coupling two phase-coherent frequency-conjugate laser pulses into a microstructure fiber, we observe phase-sensitive photon generation via four-wave mixing, and suppression of Raman emission at the middle frequency.

Filled dots, Stokes and anti-Stokes pumps; open dots, anti-Stokes pump only; open squares, Stokes pump only. D s + as is fit with P at lower power and P 2 at higher power. Detection rates versus delay. (b) P s + P as = 15 μ W , (c) 40 μ W , and (d) 55 μ W . Dots are experimental data fit to a sine function (smooth curve).
