  4. 4. Characterization of Phase-Sensitive and Phase-Insensitive Fiber Optical Parametric Amplifiers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fysik

    Author : Carl Peter Lundström; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fiber optical parametric amplifier;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is fiber optical parametric ampliers (FOPA). A unique feature of such ampliers is that they can operate in both phase-insensitive and phase-sensitive mode. The latter offers the potential of amplification without any added noise. READ MORE

  5. 5. Optical Transmission Systems Based on Phase-Sensitive Amplifiers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fysik

    Author : Samuel L I Olsson; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; optical injection locking; fiber nonlinearities; optical fiber communication; fiber nonlinearity mitigation; four-wave mixing; fiber optic parametric amplification; low-noise amplification; phase-sensitive amplification; fibre optics;

    Abstract : The capacity and reach of today's long-haul fiber optical communication systems is limited by amplifier noise and fiber nonlinearities. Conventional, phase-insensitiveamplifiers (PIAs), have a quantum limited noise figure (NF) of 3 dB at high gain, meaning that with a shot-noise limited input signal the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)is degraded by at least 3 dB.
