Paper Abstract

A stokes-vector theory is introduced to simulate the azimuth and ellipticity trajectories of the both probe and conjugate pulses in a four-wave mixing (FWM) scheme. Based on a new polarization-dependent pulsed FWM model which is derived from the three-level system, the theoretical analyses are carried out for the optical sampling of picosecond optical pulses in a lattice-matched unstrained semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) by use of strong ultrashort pump pulses. We take the TE- and TM-gain dependent effects into account. The polarization characteristics of the pulses involved in optical sampling process are analyzed in detail.
