Fiber optic parametric amplifier with 10-dB net gain without pump dithering
Journal article, 2013

We present a stimulated Brillouin Scattering (SBS)-suppressed fiber optic parametric amplifier/wavelength converter constructed from four highly nonlinear fiber pieces with applied strain gradients and separated by isolators. The effective total SBS threshold increase is about 11 dB, and a net parametric gain of 10 dB is obtained without any pump dithering.
