The phase-matching curves for the four-wave mixing effect of Bragg scattering in two fibers with opposite sign β 4 dispersion coefficients have been measured experimentally. The measured phase-matching curves are in good agreement with theoretical expectations, and their dependence on several key parameters has been determined.
