Parity-Time Anti-Symmetric Parametric Amplifier

Antonosyan, Diana A.; Solntsev, Alexander S.; Sukhorukov, Andrey


We describe the process of parametric amplification in a directional coupler of quadratically nonlinear and lossy waveguides, which belong to a class of optical systems with spatial parity-time (PT) symmetry in the linear regime. We identify a distinct spectral parity-time anti-symmetry associated with optical parametric interactions, and show that pump-controlled symmetry breaking can facilitate spectrally selective mode amplification in analogy with PT lasers. We also establish a...[Show more]
