Efficient broadband parametric conversion: reaching for the Mid IR

In this paper, we report recent results on the efficient generation of SWIR sources exploiting broadband wavelength conversion in silica fibers. Optimized cavity-less designs of fiber parametric amplifiers (FOPA) associated with Thulium amplification capable of high CW powers, wide tunability and modulation will be presented. We also present how parametric conversion can be extended deeper in the Mid-IR by engineering of non-silica mixing platforms.
