Strong signal suppression in single-pump optical parametric amplifiers

Abstract

We show that the combined action of parametric gain and Raman scattering can lead to the complete suppression of an input optical signal in a single-pump parametric amplifier. This suppression is due to an interference between the two parametric gain modes. The interference occurs only at a set of discrete combinations of pump power, phase mismatch, and frequency detuning. Experimentally we are able to demonstrate over 95% (13dB) suppression of an input signal in an amplifier with a peak parametric gain of only 6dB.
