Abstract

For the first time to our knowledge, the phase-to-phase and phase-to-amplitude transfer functions of a nondegenerate-idler phase-sensitive fiber optic parametric amplifier are experimentally measured. Additionally, analytically and numerically obtained transfer curves show excellent agreement with the experimental curves. The experimental results were obtained by imposing a linear phase modulation onto the signal and idler wave simultaneously, and detecting the input and output signal using a self-homodyne coherent receiver.
