Brillouin optical time-domain analysis of fiber-optic parametric amplifiers

We carried out distributed measurements of the longitudinal gain of fiber-optical parametric amplifiers using a novel sensing technique based on Brillouin optical time-domain analysis. Using this technique, we successfully characterized different gain behaviors in the linear and the saturation regimes. In addition, we demonstrated the recently predicted gain reciprocity at opposite ends of the amplifier span
