Abstract

We demonstrate the excitation of solitons in a parametric amplifier with enhanced signal content through the use of a chirped-period quasi-phase-matching grating. This technique affords a low soliton threshold at the input end of a parametric amplifier, and the subsequent transformation to a desired soliton that exists at nonzero wave-vector mismatch through the use of a linearly chirped quasi-phase-matching grating. This approach has an advantage over direct excitation of solitons at nonzero wave-vector mismatch in uniform nonlinear materials and holds potential for improving the efficiency and mode quality of high-gain parametric amplifiers.
