Abstract

The generation of pulses in dual-pump fiber optical parametric amplifier is investigated. Theoretically, it is shown that in an analogical manner to pulse generation in single-pump fiber optical parametric amplifiers, the generated pulse shape depends on the linear phase mismatch between the interacting waves. However the dual-pump architecture allows for the bounding of the phase mismatch over a wide bandwidth. This feature permits the generation of uniform pulses over a wide bandwidth, contrary to the single-pump architecture. Using the developed theory, a pulse source with uniform pulses at 5 GHz repetition rate and duty cycle of 0.265 over 40 nm is demonstrated.
