Abstract: Four-wave mixing experiments in a low-birefringence optical fiber reveal an unexpected sudden increase of the conversion efficiency as the signal power crosses a threshold value. In this regime, peak frequency conversion is achieved outside the small-signal parametric gain spectrum. A nonlinear model of wave mixing fits the measured data well.
