Abstract

The real part of the Raman susceptibility is shown to have a strong influence on the peak parametric gain of single-pump parametric amplifiers. This results in a 35% variation in the peak parametric gain over the frequency range 0-30THz. We are able to experimentally demonstrate this effect in a photonic crystal fiber and obtain good agreement between the experimentally measured and theoretically predicted gains.
