Abstract

We report on a chip scale parametric amplifier based on a GaInP photonic crystal waveguide. The amplifier operates with both pump and signal in the 1550 nm wavelength range and offers an on-chip gain of 11 dB (5 dB including the 6 dB coupling losses) when pumped at only 800 mW. It enables us, therefore, to incorporate the many advantages of parametric amplification within photonic chips for optical communication applications.
