Abstract

This paper presents a detailed experimental characterization of the relative intensity noise (RIN) transferred from the pump to the signal in one-pump phase insensitive fibre optic parametric amplifiers. We extend an existing experimental and theoretical work towards higher frequencies, showing for the first time a strong wavelength dependence of the RIN transfer over a 30 GHz modulation frequency range. Good agreement is obtained between the measured RIN transfer and the predictions of a simple theoretical model.
