Abstract

We describe a simple scheme to allow for the achievement of flat gain over ultrabroad bands with a single-pump fiber-optic parametric amplifier operating in the zero-dispersion wavelength region. The proposed method, based on a multisection dispersion-tailored in-line nonlinear fiber arrangement, is demonstrated by both modulational instability theory and numerical simulations of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. The results show that the design can be adjusted to generate gain bands that exceed either 100 nm with a ripple of less than 0.2 dB and for a pump power of only 500 mW, or even 200 nm when a pump power of 5 W is used. In addition, the robustness of this gain-flattening technique has been numerically checked against random fluctuations of the zero-dispersion wavelength in each of the fiber sections.
