In this chapter, the principle, design, and characteristics of high-efficiency, short-pulse-pumped, few-cycle optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification (OPCPA) systems are reviewed. To this end, the feasibility of two techniques to increase the conversion efficiency of few-cycle OPCPA systems is demonstrated and discussed. The techniques result in mJ, W pulses and correspond to a Author: Hanieh Fattahi. @article{osti_, title = {Competing collinear and noncollinear interactions in chirped quasi-phase-matched optical parametric amplifiers}, author = {Charbonneau-Lefort, Mathieu and Afeyan, Bedros and Fejer, M.

An analysis of a state variable filter of the kind described by Bonello et al is shown which illustrates the effect the dominant pole in the transfer functions of the operational amplifiers has on stability. Two methods are shown which can substantially null this effect, one of which employs the inherent matching of circuits within an integrated circuit to automatically achieve effective nulling.

A parametric oscillator is a driven harmonic oscillator in which the oscillations are driven by varying some parameter of the system at some frequency, typically different from the natural frequency of the oscillator.

A simple example of a parametric oscillator is a child pumping a playground swing by periodically standing and squatting to increase the size of the swing's oscillations. There is a systematic design strategy developed for microwave amplifiers that allows input and output voltage standing wave ratios, low noise, optimum gain and stability to be taken into account.

The concept of impedance mismatch invariance is introduced to aid the 3/5(4). There are not a few problems on the practical applications of cavity type parametric amplifiers, but improving their performance reliability may be one of the most important.

Optical parametric oscillators pumped by μm pulsed Nd:YAG lasers have been operated over the wavelength range –4 μm with tuning by temperature or by quasi-phasematched : Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh. Various other char­acteristics of Parametric Amplifier Types must also now be discussed, such as practical circuits, their performance and advantages, and lastly the important noise perfor­mance.

Amplifier Types: When classifying parametric amplifiers, the first thing to decide is the device whose parameter will be varied.

Optical Society of America, Research output:Author: Joel Nishimura, J. Nathan Kutz. An amplifier, electronic amplifier or (informally) amp is an electronic device that can increase the power of a signal (a time-varying voltage or current).It is a two-port electronic circuit that uses electric power from a power supply to increase the amplitude of a signal applied to its input terminals, producing a proportionally greater amplitude signal at its output.

A relevant instability phenomenon in degenerate parametric power amplifiers is the division by two of the pump frequency. Because of the existence of an input source at the same frequency of the instability, the degenerate parametric power amplifier will exhibit a specific bifurcation behavior, inherent to this type of circuit.
