A novel method for polarization insensitive four-wave mixing in semiconductor optical amplifiers

By: Khalfin, V.; Ovsthus, K.;

1996 / IEEE

Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' A novel method for polarization insensitive four-wave mixing in semiconductor optical amplifiers ' A new method for obtaining polarization insensitive four-wave mixing with phase inversion in a semiconductor optical amplifier is proposed. The method uses the simplest configuration with co-propagating pump and signal waves. The possibility of polarization insensitive four-wave mixing is shown for a tensile quantum well. Polarization insensitivity can be obtained by the right detuning of the pump wavelength from the gain peak.
