Abstract

The performance of fiber-optical parametric amplification is studied by employing the AsSe2-based hybrid microstructured optical fiber (HMOF). By adding a buffer layer around the core with appropriate diameter and refractive index difference, the chromatic dispersion profile of chalcogenide HMOFs can be tailored to have a near-zero and flattened anomalous dispersion regime in the mid-infrared window. A very broad gain bandwidth can be achieved from 3.0 to 9.0 µm by pumping at 4.7 µm. The signal gain can be as high as 32 dB. In addition, the HMOF with buffer layer can suppress the chromatic dispersion variation caused by the fiber structure fluctuation and maintain the signal gain spectrum.
