Abstract

A practical scheme for polarization-insensitive and frequency-conversion interval–independent four-wave mixing in an optical loop configuration is proposed that uses one conventional semiconductor optical amplifier device and two perpendicular polarized pump sources. The significant advantages of this technique are simplicity of configuration, efficient conjugate power generation, effective suppression of the signal and one pump wave at the output port, and reduction in noise.
