Abstract

A method to optimize the gain of a fiber optical parametric amplifier (FOPA) is presented by using a genetic algorithm (GA), which can determine the parameters of FOPA and avoid the trouble of trial and error to achieve it. The effect of pump depletion on the gain characteristic of the FOPA is emphasized, and the effects of the fiber length, the wavelength, and the power of two pumps on bandwidth, flatness, and magnitude of the gain spectrum are also studied. According to the presentation, fiber length and the wavelength of the two pumps are selected to be the variable parameters in the GA. When the parameters of the fiber are determined, with the numerical simulation, the optimum combination scheme between those chosen variables could be obtained by the algorithms with the result of the gain optimization of FOPA.
