Paper Abstract

Phase sensitive amplification (PSA) is an attractive technology for integrated all-optical signal processing, due to it's potential for noiseless amplification, phase regeneration and generation of squeezed light. In this talk I will review our results on implementing four-wave-mixing based PSA inside integrated photonic devices. In particular I will discuss PSA in chalcogenide ridge waveguides and silicon slow-light photonic crystals. We achieve PSA in both pump- and signal-degenerate schemes with maximum extinction ratios of 11 (silicon) and 18 (chalcogenide) dB. I will further discuss the influence of two-photon absorption and free carrier effects on the performance of silicon-based PSAs.
