Abstract

We report numerical investigations on ultrashort pulse amplification with high gain in a fiber-based optical parametric amplifier pumped by a broadband chirped pulse. The amplifier has been tailored for ultrabroadband amplification with an analytical model and has key features to overcome gain narrowing and pulse distortion, which are usually observed in ion-doped fiber amplifiers. By combining chirped pump and signal pulses in a fiber, we highlight the possibility to amplify sub-30-fs pulses with standard ultrafast technologies.
