Abstract
PSI PROPOSES TO STUDY NONLINEAR EFFECTS AS MEANS TO PRODUCE LOW NOISE OPTICAL AMPLIFICATION. THE NONLINEAR PHENOMENA INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, SIMULATED SCATTERING AND WAVE MIXING. A BROAD LITERATURE SEARCH AND ANALYSIS OF THE APPLICABILITY OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES FOR PHASE PRESERVING OPTICAL AMPLIFIERS WILL BE MADE. APPLICABILITY ISSUES INCLUDE FIDELITY OF PHASE IMPRINT FROM A WEAK BEAM ONTO AN AMPLIFIED BEAM, NOISE ISSUES AND SCALABILITY. WAVE MIXING PROCESSES INCLUDE, BUT AR NOT LIMITED TO, TWO BEAM COUPLING, PARAMETRIC MIXING, UP-CONVERSION AND DOWN-CONVERSION MAY ALSO PROVE USEFUL AS NONLINEAR OPTICS PHASE PRESERVING AMPLIFIERS. THE END PRODUCT OF PHASE I WILL BE A CONCEPTUAL ANALYSIS AND COMPUTER MODEL OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SEVERAL KEY TECHNOLOGIES FOR OPTICAL AMPLIFICATION (INCLUDING MODELS OF PHASE AND IMAGE FIDELITY).
