We describe a new technique that utilizes birefringence for phase matching of stimulated parametric emission in a single-mode optical fiber. The frequency shift between the generated frequencies and the pump frequency can be controlled over a wide range (~1000 cm−1) by the magnitude of birefringence built into the fiber.
