Abstract

We demonstrate optical pulse switching and amplification based on simultaneous Raman and Kerr effects in a fiber-loop mirror. Stimulated Raman scattering is shown to play a dominant role in the transfer function of the loop with highly germania-doped fibers, in agreement with theoretical predictions. Optical switching of a 100-ps signal pulse with an amplification factor of 10 was demonstrated in a 20-mol.% GeO2-doped fiber.
