Optical phase quantizer based on phase sensitive four wave mixing at low nonlinear phase shifts

Optical phase quantizer based on phase sensitive four wave mixing at low nonlinear phase shifts
We propose and demonstrate a new phase sensitive scheme based on four-wave mixing followed by a polarizer to achieve an ideal binary step-like phase transfer function at nonlinear phase shifts as low as 0.3 radians by significantly increasing the parametric de-amplification component. Phase-sensitive operation is obtained by polarization mixing the phase-locked and orthogonally-polarized signal and idler, which is generated in a degenerate dual-pump vector parametric amplifier.

Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a new phase sensitive scheme based on four-wave mixing followed by a polarizer to achieve an ideal binary step-like phase transfer function at nonlinear phase shifts as low as 0.3 radians by significantly increasing the parametric de-amplification component. Phase-sensitive operation is obtained by polarization mixing the phase-locked and orthogonally-polarized signal and idler, which is generated in a degenerate dual-pump vector parametric amplifier.
